To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to support the (a) coach industry (b) haulage industry in light of rising diesel costs; and if he will introduce an essential user rebate on fuel duty by taking 15ppl of the cost of fuel for commercial road users.
At the Spring Statement, the Government announced a temporary cut in duty on petrol and diesel of 5 pence per litre. This represents a tax cut worth around £2.4 billion in 2022-23. This benefits anyone who consumes fuel – including those in the coach industry and haulage industry.
All taxes are kept under review.
