The Government has 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.
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.
Responding for the Government, Financial Secretary to the Treasury Greg Clark confirmed that the Coalition are talking to the European Union about how they can extend the rural fuel duty to mainland areas.
