MP Andrew George presents 5p petrol cut petition to Parliament
West Cornwall MP Andrew George has spoken in the House of Commons about the campaign to extend the road fuel concession to Cornwall.
He called for an extension of the five pence per litre cut in road fuel duty for people in mainland Cornwall following the successful campaign to secure the cut for the Isles of Scilly, which was introduced in April this year.
Presenting a petition calling for a 5p cut to Parliament, Mr George said: “It is my honour to present a petition on behalf of 2,589 of my constituents in the mainland area of west Cornwall in support of a 5p a litre reduction in road fuel duty, which my constituents on the Isles of Scilly have enjoyed since the spring of this year.
“Given that the Government’s supplementary call for information closes on Friday this week, my constituents urge them to acknowledge that the forecourt price is neither the only nor the most appropriate proxy measure of rural transport poverty, especially as many households have no choice but to have a private car in order to maintain a living.”
