The CBI has responded on the Government’s decision to postpone its planned 3p-a-litre rise in fuel duty in August until January next year. Dr Neil Bentley, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:
This decision will be welcomed by hard-pressed families and businesses across the country.
A fuel duty freeze will help to support road hauliers and freight transport operators, making delivering our goods that bit more affordable, and supporting the economy during the challenging months ahead.
