Fuel Duty


Thank you for contacting me about fuel duty. I know this is an important issue for families and businesses in West Dorset.
The Chancellor will deliver his Budget on 8 July and I would not wish to speculate on what will be set out. However, I am proud of the strong action we have taken on fuel duty to help ease the pressure on family budgets.
As a result of the continued action taken on fuel duty since 2011 by the end of 2015-16 the typical motorist will save £9 each time they fill their tank compared to what it would have been had this action not been taken.
I know this is a key issue for motorists.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
