Green Protectionism: 'Eco-tax' sparks controversy
Issued on: Modified:
This week, the French debate on "eco-tax" is back on the spotlight. The Environment Minister says she's in favour of pushing ahead with a controversial levy on lorries, but in a slightly different form. Also, a new report says that pilot error caused an Air France flight to crash into the ocean en route from Rio to Paris back in 2009. Finally, the Culture Ministry dismisses the president of the Picasso Museum, which is now set to re-open in September.
