Budget 2013: September fuel duty increase scrapped

  • 20 March 2013
  • By Christopher Walton

The chancellor George Osborne has scrapped the fuel duty increase scheduled for September in the Budget today.

He told MPs in the House of Commons that he had “listened to the people we represent” – singling out the work of FairFuelUK supporter, Robert Halfon MP, and would scrap the proposed fuel duty rise.

He explained that the Treasury had forgon £6bn of revenue as a result of scrapping a total of 13ppl in fuel duty over the past two years.

The Road Haulage Association tweeted in response: “RHA pleased that September’s increase in fuel duty is cancelled. But we are STILL paying the highest levels fuel duty in Europe.”

Halfon blogged after the Budget: “I am delighted. This was a cost of living Budget. It puts fuel in the tank of the British economy.”
