To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions he has had with the Competition and Markets Authority on its Market Study into road fuel and the potential merits of including a breakdown of the costs of inland fuel transportation and their impact on retail price.
The Competition and Markets Authority launched a market study into the supply of road fuel in the UK on 08 July. This followed my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State’s request to the CMA for advice on a number of features of the market for road fuel. The Government fully supports the CMA in its further work on this important issue. As part of its market study, the CMA welcomes views from stakeholders of all kinds on the issues it should be considering. Details on how to submit views to the CMA are available on the webpage for the market study, accessible at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/cma-cases/road-fuel-market-study.
