I have been campaigning for the Prime Minister and Chancellor to keep fuel duty down.
I am pleased The Chancellor has made it clear that there has been no changes to fuel duty following the Autumn Statement and the 5p cut will remain in place until the end of March 2023 as expected.
However, as the proud FairFuelUK and The Sun's fuel champion in Parliament I will be lobbying the Chancellor with colleagues to ensure the cut remains in place permanently, at the very least.
Motorists, van drivers and hauliers have already been hit in the pocket for far too long - cutting fuel duty will help reduce inflation, and generate growth through increases to disposable income and, as such, consumer spending.
This is why we need a 'Pump Watch' to call out companies taking advantage of current global challenges and protect 37 million UK drivers from profiteering in the fuel supply chain. We have Ofcom, Ofgem and Ofwat, so why not 'Pump Watch'?
Prices at the pump should be coming down and the government must do its part to help drivers in these challenging times.
Over 2000 people in Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke have already pledged their support to this campaign and you can show your support by signing up to FairFuelUK here.
