I am aware that fuel duty is an important issue for families and businesses in the constituency of Taunton Deane.
I welcome the Chancellor’s conformation that there will be no changes to fuel duty which will remain frozen this year. I am very 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 will be sure to monitor it closely.
