Geoff Dunning CEO of the RHA
The Road Haulage Association is delighted that following a meeting at the Treasury with Chief Secretary Danny Alexander and the FairFuelUK team, the Government has recognised that lower fuel duty can be an economic stimulus not just an additional revenue earner from already hard-pressed hauliers and motorists.

At a the meeting, the Chief Secretary presented FairFuelUK spokesman Quentin Willson and founder Howard Cox, with the government’s recently published fuel duty dynamic modelling which supports the fuel campaign group’s long-held contention that lower fuel duty increases jobs, GDP and economic activity.

Commenting, RHA Chief Executive Geoff Dunning (photo) said: "The Road Haulage Association has supported FairFuelUK since its inception three and a half years ago and this news confirms, without doubt, the fact that we made the right decision. Now, with a general election on the horizon, we shall be working even more closely with FFUK to ensure that we can get Government to go one step further and make a positive cut in fuel duty – a boost that the economy, hauliers and every other road user so desperately needs.”

I am glad to hear that a wee bit of common sense Has crept into the Governments thinking regarding fuel, the bleeding of taxes through fuel to the Government coffers has been a major obstical that has held the country back, What with hauliers struggling to keep up due to revenue shortage, Im sure if the feul tax was kept at a sensible level then people would spend more on fuel and in the shops stimulating the economy which in turn would help the country become prosperous once more, sometime you just need to slacken the rains so the horse can get going.
