EU says UK emission plans illegal
The Commission approved London's original plan last July with instructions to make minor changes. The government later re-jigged the plan, raising the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that industry can emit by nearly 3 percent. It threatened to take the Commission to court if approval of the changes was refused.But the EU executive has stood its ground. In a letter obtained by Reuters, Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas wrote to environment secretary Margaret Beckett that the new allocations were not acceptable.
