Fuel Duty freeze maintained, as chancellor turns back on calls for a cut in the Budget

The chancellor George Osborne has opted to maintain the fuel duty freeze rather than introduce a cut in the Budget today.

It means, as outlined in the Autumn Statement last year, that fuel duty will have been frozen for the length of the current parliament.

It comes despite FairFuelUK delivering a letter last week with support from campaign backers and MPs alike, calling for a 3ppl cut in fuel duty to secure the recovery and stimulate the economy further.

FairFuelUK tweeted: “Massive disappointment @hmtreasury still don’t get it. Cutting duty will help the growth of the UK. Our campaign goes on to convince them.”
