The FairFuelUK Campaign and its 1.1m supporters warmly welcome the outcome of the General Election as the best option for the economy, 32m motorists, businesses and the UK Haulage Industry. Fuel duty is frozen until the end of 2015 and any threatened levy increase by an Ed Miliband Government is now not a reality. The Lib Dems also said they would increase fuel duty if in power and it seems that Nick Clegg had been the obstacle to any more cuts taking place whilst in the coalition.
FairFuelUK will now campaign hard to get a 3p cut in duty with the help of supporting backbenchers in the Tory Party and consistently supporting MPS from the SNP, DUP and several Labour politicos. In addition FairFuelUK with the backing of the RAC, FTA, RHA and the APN will be calling on the nation’s new MPs to support a full transparent investigation by the CMA of the pricing process at the pumps.
Quentin Willson lead campaigner for FairFuelUK said: "Election outcome means Conservatives should continue their low fuel duty policy because FairFuelUK has proved to them it's worked. Let's make sure they keep their promises."
Howard Cox, founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign said: "The risk of a duty rise for hard pressed motorists and hauliers is removed for the immediate future. It is indeed fabulous news but we will not rest on our laurels and will continue to campaign very hard to prove to the Treasury that cutting duty will continue to generate new jobs, lower inflation, increase GDP and stimulate new sources of tax revenue from economic growth. Many new MPs have already contacted us to support FairFuelUK. All the pollsters forecasted the election result wide of reality. Whereas in our pre-election campaign poll of 60,000 supporters they predicted the outcome almost spot on.”
