After months of campaigning, negotiating and hard work, from Jonathan working closely with FairFuelUK’s Howard Cox was pleased to see the Chancellor commit to keeping the fuel duty freeze in place during the Budget.
Rishi Sunak, cut fuel duty for petrol and diesel by 5 pence per litre during the 2022 Spring Budget. Over 12 months this meant a £5 billion saving over 12 months which has provided vital in keeping Britain’s 37 million motorists on the road. Jonathan as the proud FairFuelUK and the Sun’s fuel champion in Parliament will be lobbying with the Chancellor alongside colleagues to ensure that the cut remains in place permanently, at the very least.
Putin’s illegal and abhorrent invasion of Ukraine created considerable instability in the global financial markets – the cut was welcomed by motorists as it has kept costs down. Small businesses and families right across the country, especially in areas like Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke, rely on their vehicle. The continuation in the freeze is will therefore be warmly welcomed.
Commenting, Jonathan Gullis said:
"I want to thank the Chancellor for having the backs of motorists in Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke, and supporting my campaign to keep the cut to fuel duty. Keeping the prices down at the pump is so important because so many of us rely on our vehicles. Whether it's getting the kids to school, to and from work, visiting the relatives, or attending a hospital appointment, driving is an everyday part of life. Motorists needed to see, now more than ever, we are on their side, and I am proud that once again it is this Prime Minister, this Chancellor, and this Conservative Party who have the interests of Britain’s 37 million motorists at the heart of the Budget.”
