Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Catherine Griset (ID)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Carbon tax on imports

In its European recovery and reindustrialisation plan the Commission envisages combating unfair competition. One of the measures envisaged is a carbon tax on goods imported into the EU.

While we warmly welcome this type of protectionism, we note, none the less, how it contradicts with the liberal ideals on which our Union prides itself.

Does the Commission envisage a genuine protective measure or a mere symbolic tax? Does the Commission already have an approximate idea of the tax rate to be imposed and the goods on which the future carbon tax will be levied?
