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. "
