Local MP Andrew Bingham joined Quentin Willson and his FairFuelUK team in the House of Commons to add his voice to the call for a better deal on petrol and diesel taxation in the forthcoming Budget.

Andrew said: “I was happy to meet with FairFuelUK to discuss fuel duty. I have consistently supported lower fuel duty in order to help hard-pressed motorists and businesses in the High Peak, and I have previously raised the issue with both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor.”

Quentin Willson said: “We were delighted to meet with Andrew at our Westminster Lobby. Our research shows that high fuel costs are the nation’s Number 1 financial priority. A significant cut in Fuel Duty will give the economy the kick start it needs. With sterling’s recent fall and rising oil prices the approaching spectre of diesel at £1.60 litre is a nightmare this country simply can’t face.”
