Despite clear evidence to the contrary, the UK government denies that it provides financial support to coal

This country study and accompanying data sheet compile publicly available information on G20 subsidies to the production and consumption of coal (including coal-fired power) in the United Kingdom in 2016 and 2017. It is a background paper to the report G20 coal subsidies: tracking government support to a fading industry and provides a baseline to track progress on the phase-out of such subsidies as part of a wider global energy transition.
