Hope for fuel duty campaign

RURAL residents around Filey could be set for a timely financial boost thanks to a government investigation into fuel duty.

Filey MP Anne McIntosh has secured a debate in The House of Commons on Tuesday, to look at a potential stabilisation of the current fuel duty.

The plans also include a rebate for anyone living in remote rural areas.

She said: “I am delighted to have secured this debate on fuel duty stabiliser and rebate.

“It is a good opportunity to discuss these issues which are keenly felt in remote rural areas where large distances for everyday journeys are coupled with limited public transport alternatives.

“The timing of this debate is important as the last government’s duty increase will be coming into effect soon.

“I welcome that the government are looking at whether it is possible to introduce a fair fuel stabiliser.”
