Campaign group FairFuelUK (FFUK) has called again on chancellor Philip Hammond to use tomorrow’s Autumn Statement (22 November) to cut fuel duty and boost the economy. Following speculation that the chancellor will announce a freeze, FFUK urged him to go one step further and slash fuel duty by 3ppl. The group argues that a 3ppl cut would create 8,000 jobs, boost income tax revenues and save the poorest 50% households a combined £1.9bn, based on research by CEBR. FFUK said: […]
FairFuelUK is calling on operators to lobby their MPs to attend a parliamentary inquiry that will look at alternative ways of reducing emissions without the need for ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ) and fuel taxes.
A cross-party group of MPs joined FairFuelUK (FFUK) and its backers today, to deliver a letter to 10 Downing Street calling for a 3ppl reduction in fuel duty in next week’s Budget.
Operators face a potential triple whammy in the chancellor’s Autumn Statement on 25 November with cuts to spending on local roads, the DVSA’s enforcement budget and an increase in fuel duty on the cards.
