Labour will force a Commons vote today to call for a planned 3p hike in fuel duty to be postponed for a second time.
Ed Balls said "it cannot be right" to hit struggling families and businesses with another tax rise, and urged MPs from all sides to back demands for the Government to cancel the increase due in January.
He said: "At a time when the cost of living is rising, our recovery is fragile and this out-of-touch Government is giving 8,000 millionaires a tax cut, it cannot be right to hit middle and low income families and small businesses with another tax increase.
"That is why Labour is calling on the Chancellor to cancel January's planned 3p rise in fuel duty - at least until next April.
