Howard Cox and I listened to the Chancellor hoping a new man at the helm would be cause for optimism for drivers and the economy.

 

This wasn’t a driver-friendly Autumn Statement. Car insurance tax went up, £1b on roads is an eightieth of what we’re about to spend on HS2, there was no significant increase in buyers incentives for low emission and electric cars no mention of plans for an electric wireless charging superhighway and only £27m on a road to join Oxford and Cambridge.  £220m on easing congestion pinch points might sound a lot but in reality it’s just a tiny raindrop echoing in a ...

Autumn Statement: The longest Tax Freeze in history Must be Turned into a Cut

Pre-Autumn Statement releases and announcement rumours of a continuing freeze in fuel duty till April 2018 show that the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his first ‘Mini-Budget’ is undeniably listening to FairFuelUK’s overwhelming economic evidence that lower prices at the pumps are hugely beneficial to the economy.

However, following the Autumn Statement UK petrol drivers will remain the 5th most fuel taxed in the world with diesel drivers being punished more than all other countries in 1st position. (See Table) UK drivers will still pay £33bn in fuel taxes ...

FairFuelUK CEBR Report - Low Fuel Prices Add £11.6 Billion to Economy


A groundbreaking report published this week by the Centre for Economic and Business Research confirms that the lower petrol and diesel prices of 2015 have raised UK GDP by 0.6%, created an extra £11.6 billion of economic activity, 121,000 jobs and boosted government tax revenues. The research also shows that raising duty on diesel or increasing VED on diesel vehicles would cost businesses and families £9.3 billion across the current Parliament.
 
The historic research, commissioned by FairFuelUK, shows that the low oil and fuel forecourt prices seen this year have increased business investment, ...

We promised you that we’d officially warn George Osborne against raising duty in the Autumn Statement and we have. This week Howard and I braved the rain and autumnal gales outside the Treasury to hand-deliver evidence supporting our argument that raising fuel duty - especially diesel - would damage the economy. Our closely argued letter shows that the UK has the highest fuel duty regime of any of the 56 countries in Continental Europe, that any increase in diesel duty would increase costs for hauliers which would be passed down the supply chain to the high street and consumers. And that could trigger higher inflation ...

  • In the lead up to the Autumn Statement, 100’s of MPs and the award winning campaign team FairFuelUK tell the Chancellor "it’s now time that Fuel Duty is cut, not just frozen, to help increase consumer spending. Such a cut has been proven will benefit the economy and the Exchequer.”

  • Today Monday 9th November at 2pm, MP Jason McCartney with Quentin Willson (TV Motoring Journalist/Lead Campaigner for FairFuelUK) and other MPs from all Parties, together with senior executives of the FTA, and RHA and Microlise will deliver a letter to George Osborne at HM Treasury calling for a 3p cut in Fuel Duty.

  • In the letter to the Chancellor results from ...

PRESS RELEASE: Following Autumn Statement 


George Osborne's claim that freezing the current 60% taxation on petrol and diesel is a triumph for road users. It is in fact a huge disappointment to FairFuelUK's 400,000 supporters, its backers including the FTA, RHA, APN, Aldermore and the RAC. All the evidence presented by FairFuelUK shows that cutting Fuel Duty significantly will generate jobs, increase GDP and reduce inflation. This expert evidence bizarrely has not been refuted by the Treasury. Why is that? We asked them to be bold and cut fuel duty but instead the cash cow ...
