Fuel Duty

Fuel duty has an important impact for families and businesses in the constituency.
I welcomed the Chancellor's confirmation that there will be no changes to fuel duty which will remain frozen this year. The Conservatives in Government have taken strong action to help ease the pressure on family budgets. As a result of the continued action taken on fuel duty since 2011 by the end of 2015-16 the typical motorist will save £9 each time they fill their tank compared to what it would have been had this action not been taken.
