Fuel guage

FairFuelUK (FFUK) has secured a meeting with chief secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, on Monday (29 October) to discuss the 3ppl duty rise planned for January.

The meeting will include senior Treasury officials and RHA chief executive Geoff Dunning, and will focus on the findings of economic research funded by the RHA on behalf of FFUK.

“Carried out by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, the modelling shows how fuel duty impacts on growth and employment in the economy, and provides a strong case for a cut in fuel duty,” said FFUK founder Peter Carroll.

“In my time campaigning about fuel, it’s unprecedented for the Treasury, and a minister at the level of Danny Alexander, to openly welcome a campaign group likes ours to discuss such an important issue. It’s testament to everybody who’s backed FFUK and promoted it,” added Carroll.

The full findings of the research will be available from 5pm on Monday on FairFuelUK's website.
