Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls has said today that the Chancellor's decision to scrap fuel duty is the "fastest u-turn in history" and was pleased that George Osborne had "backed down" on the plans.
Mr Balls said: “With u-turns on petrol, pasties, caravans, charities and churches, George Osborne's Budget is now in tatters - a truly omni-shambles of a Budget from a part-time Chancellor whose reputation is now badly damaged.
“But we now need to see a u-turn on the tax cut for millionaires and the tax rise on pensioners. And with Britain pushed into a double-dip recession, which means borrowing is now higher than last year, we need a u-turn on this Government's failed economic plan.”
