High Peak MP backs campaign for lower fuel duty

Local MP Andrew Bingham joined Quentin Willson and his FairFuelUK team in the House of Commons to add his voice to the call for a better deal on petrol and diesel taxation in the forthcoming Budget.

Andrew said: “I was happy to meet with FairFuelUK to discuss fuel duty. I have consistently supported lower fuel duty in order to help hard-pressed motorists and businesses in the High Peak, and I have previously raised the issue with both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor.”

Quentin Willson said: “We were delighted to meet with Andrew at our Westminster Lobby. Our research shows that high fuel costs are the nation’s Number 1 financial priority. A significant cut in Fuel Duty will give the economy the kick start it needs. With sterling’s recent fall and rising oil prices the approaching spectre of diesel at £1.60 litre is a nightmare this country simply can’t face.”
