The Road Haulage Association welcomes the Chancellor’s decision to freeze fuel duty.
RHA Chief Executive Richard Burnett said: “The freeze on fuel duty continues the very positive policy of the last government and will give a massive boost to business confidence not only in the road haulage industry but the economy as a whole.
“We would have preferred a 3p a litre cut in duty, to boost both jobs and growth but it was essential that duty was not increased. Our hauliers already pay by far the highest diesel duty in the EU and twice as much as many of our competitors.”
