For immediate release.
“Imagine what reducing fuel to around £1 per litre would do to kickstart the UK economy, bringing down prices of goods in the shops and taking thousands out of poverty. That is what £32 billion could achieve for more than eight years. 1
£32 billion could have been used to scrap VAT on road fuel altogether for the next eight years plus. 2
That rather puts this colossal sum into perspective. Instead the government are apparently set to completely ignore public opinion and build this white elephant which will only save a few businessmen a few minutes.”
