Fuel Duty Response to the Budget with supporting comments from 5 Conservative MPs and the Deputy Chair of the Cebr. Former Transport and Cabinet Minister, Chris Grayling says, “We must remain on the side of the motorist.” Howard Cox, Founder of FairFuelUK, Secretary for the APPG for Fair Fuel: “It would be churlish, not to thank the Chancellor and the Prime Minister for maintaining the freeze in Fuel Duty for a 10th successive year.

In the myopic minds of transport and Treasury politicos, it is evident that “polluter pays” will unquestionably evolve to “user pays”. That will of course, incense those well-off electric vehicle drivers who bought their characterless zilch emissions vehicles because they qualify for zero taxes and urban charges exemptions. There is a prophetic irony here, to when we were all told to switch to diesel from petrol over 20 years ago. A certain smugness will soon turn to a déjà vu reality. 4 out of 5 fossil fuel drivers, from FairFuelUK’s detailed research, believe it is how much driving that takes
The award-winning public affairs campaign that has been mainly responsible for securing the 10 years freeze in Fuel Duty responds to the rumours that the Chancellor will increase Fuel Duty 5p, to pay for the extension to Universal Credit and pay off Covid Debt. “Hiking fuel tax is like putting an even bigger hole in a sinking ship. 5p on duty raises only a fraction of the cost of the hike in Universal Credit. It is pure vindictiveness forced by a ill-informed and uncharacteristic Tory green agenda, that the Treasury are lashing out at motorists.” “It will be disingenuous hitting
FairFuelUK and its 1.7m supporters, wants to help achieve cleaner and cleaner air but not through threatening vehicle sales bans.

Here’s how can tell them! Please take part in the Drivers Ultimate Survey July 2020 Please take part in probably the most important Road User’s Survey ever carried out, in this volatile world of polarised opinion, health scares and anti driver media reporting. A survey that you’d thought the RAC or the AA should issue. Any coverage in the media on motoring and driving issues has fallen almost to zero, except when drivers are designated the demons in the plethora of environmental stories. It seems only the not for profit motoring groups, the ABD and FairFuelUK are willing to put

Other Councils are looking to London for the lead on setting up Congestion Charges and more ULEZs All to fleece drivers even more…. Sadiq Khan’s latest inept financial management of transport strategy has gone too far The congestion charge in London will rocket 30% in June 2020 and NOW be enforced seven days a week, as the far left wing mayor struggles to pay for his debt-ridden transport system.

Firstly, on behalf of Quentin and myself, we hope you are keeping healthy and safe. In this stressful time for every one of us, it is right we thank and applaud our NHS workers. They are indeed, truly risking their own health every day to make sure the rest of us are safe and recover from this hideous virus.

And sadly, many of these businesses will go under during and beyond this crisis, unless the Government helps them to survive. That is why we
