The decision to cancel the fuel duty increase due in September has been welcomed by the MP for Thirsk, Malton and Filey.
This news will be welcomed by many living in Thirsk, Malton and Filey. Obviously, I am disappointed that the Chancellor has not agreed to a rural fuel duty rebate for certain areas of North Yorkshire. Measures in the budget that will help hard working families include future childcare vouchers for working parents or single parents, help with mortgages for new homes, the reduction of tax on new jobs in small companies, as well as the commitment to raise personal allowances so no-one will pay income tax for the first £10,000.
These measures show that the Government is trying to help all with aspirations who are trying to do their best for their families.
