EXPLANATORY NOTE

The amendments are required following the devolution of the power to set direct long haul rates for air passenger duty to the Northern Ireland Assembly in the Finance Act 2012, and the introduction of a new higher rate of Air Passenger Duty to be applied to certain aircraft from 1st April 2013.
