British Aggregates v Commission [2006] EUECJ T-210/02

Court of First Instance judgment (about 28 pages) in a dispute between a group of UK aggregates mining companies and the UK Government. The companies had argued that the exemption of secondary aggregates, recycled aggregates and aggregates for exports from the scope of the UK aggregates levy constituted unlawful State aid. The court disagreed and instead endorsed the European Commission's view that the scope of the levy was consistent with its general scheme and purposes, and that there was therefore no aid within the meaning of Article 87(1).
