As a result of discussions between Petrol & Diesel Campaign Group FairFuelUK and Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, FairFuelUK is to take part in face to face talks at HM Treasury on Monday 29th October 2012 at 4pm to discuss the impact of Fuel Duty on the UK economy.
FairFuelUK is widely credited with leading the successful campaigning efforts to see over 9p per litre of Fuel Duty rises over the last 18 months either scrapped or deferred. The meeting takes place ahead of the Government’s planned 3p per litre rise in Fuel Duty now scheduled for 1st Jan 2013. Analysis of ground breaking modelling work undertaken by FairFuelUK on the impact of Fuel Duty on UK growth and the economy will form the centre piece of the discussions.
Quentin Willson, national spokesman for FairFuelUK said, ‘This is an enormously positive gesture from The Treasury for FairFuelUK to present their ground-breaking research on the impact raising fuel duty has on the UK economy. The fact that Treasury figures are interested and listening sends an important message to all the business and families out there deeply anxious about the forthcoming 3p rise in January. This sort of open-minded engagement is exactly what this country needs to see.'
