'They're listening to the working person'

Chris Reay, the managing director of Reays coaches in Cumbria, has welcomed the news that the fuel tax increase proposed for January has now been scrapped:

"I think they're actually listening to the working person, and that's where we need to turn this country round.

"Obviously they've abolished this tax rise which is fantastic for me as a transport business, but it's for everybody because it transcends right through the food chain. It's brilliant. "
