Today Robert Halfon MP and Quentin Willson, lead spokesman of FairFuelUK unveiled a massive Petrol & Diesel Receipt outside Parliament. It clearly shows the ideal layout that FairFuelUK proposes should be issued on every petrol and diesel receipt, with VAT, Fuel Duty and the total tax paid to the Government highlighted.
Quentin Willson said: "We get tax transparency on utility bills but we don’t get them on fuel receipts - the Government’s embarrassed because of its 60% rake off. To drop the cloak of secrecy around oil and fuel, we need the Government to set an example by being open about how much it takes from every litre of petrol and diesel we put in our tanks."
