The Berwickshire MP and Scottish Secretary Michael Moore has said motorists across the Borders will welcome the decision by the Chancellor to abandon a planned 3p rise in fuel duty, due in January:
"I think that it's particularly important that the Chancellor has abandoned the proposed fuel duty increase. That will help motorsits across the south of Scotland and the north of England, and in rural areas.
"As well as that, we've got a cut to people's taxes- taking low and middle income tax payers out of tax all together and reducing the burden on others.
"For people across the south of Scotland and the north of England that's very important."
