LOCAL MP WELCOMES GOVERNMENT DECISION TO FREEZE FUEL TAX

Member of Parliament for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Dr Dan Poulter, has welcomed the Government’s decision to freeze fuel duty for the rest of the year. The move cancels a planned 3 pence increase that was due to take place in August and will bring relief to many businesses and hardworking families in Ipswich and Suffolk.

The decision means that pump prices will be 10 pence a litre cheaper than if the Government had not abolished the pre-existing fuel duty escalator. As a result of the Government’s actions to support motorists, fuel duty will not have increased for two successive years and the average family with a car will be £159 better off overall than they otherwise would have been.
