Conservative Tim Yeo, chairman of the energy and climate change committee told Channel 4 News tonight that the Government's u-turn on fuel duty would not have been his "top priority" and he "regrets" the option was chosen.
Mr Yeo said: "I think the priority should have been to continue working to take low income families on less than £10,000 out of tax. That's a coalition priority and I think spending the money that way would have reached lots of low income families."
