Chief Treasury Secretary Danny Alexander's constituency at Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey would benefit from the scheme. He put forward his views:
"As a Highlander, I know all too well that fuel prices tend to be highest in areas where a car is needed the most.
"We've already delivered a tax cut for remote islands and now want to extend that to mainland rural areas that suffer from similarly high prices to the islands.
"We have put together the strongest possible evidence base to try and maximise the places that get it. As I've said before, it won't be easy to get this agreed with the Commission, but I will do everything I can to make this happen."
