The Coalition Government has today confirmed that they are talking to the European Union about how they can cut the tax on petrol and diesel for rural areas like North Cornwall.
During Treasury Questions Cornish Liberal Democrat MP Dan Rogerson asked Government ministers to cut fuel duty further for rural areas like his North Cornwall constituency by extending the 5 pence per litre reduction in tax on fuel - currently in operation on the Scillies - to mainland areas.
Mr Rogerson welcomed the cancellation of planned 3 pence per litre rise in tax on petrol and diesel that was announced last week, but said that more needed to be done to make it easier for people in rural areas to be able to access employment opportunities.
