RHA welcomes Chancellor’s pain relief measure.


The Road Haulage Association is delighted at the Chancellor’s decision to abandon the 3.02ppl duty increase until 2013 at the earliest.

 

"This is a further landmark policy achievement by the FairFuelUK alliance, of which the RHA is a leading member”, said RHA Director of Policy, Jack Semple.

 

"The FairFuelUK campaign has driven a change in the way that fuel duty is perceived. Today’s announcement will prevent further pressure being applied to the profitability and cash flow of UK hauliers in particular. The duty increase would have added £1,200 a year to the cost of running a truck. More widely, the Chancellor’s decision will be welcomed by businesses and consumers across the entire economy”.

Dont get me wrong i am glad it wont go up, but a delay of a rise, is not enough, I ask for a cut in fuel duty, and don't start giving me the slaver about inflation, because no one got a pay rise in line with inflation. for too long its been about how much the government need the money, well not any longer because we the people need the money more, and we can, sure as hell, spend it a little more wisely.
