Fuel Duty

 I know this is an important issue 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.  I am proud of the strong action we have taken 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. 

I know this is a key issue for motorists and I always monitor it closely.
