Minister reconsiders 3p rise in fuel duty

News | Published:

ISLANDERS could be spared a hike in fuel duty by a last-minute change of heart by the Council of Ministers.

A comment published on the eve of tomorrow's Budget debate suggests that the Council of Ministers is considering accepting the proposal by Deputy Gerard Baudains to cancel their proposed three-pence-per-litre duty rise.

The 6.9% increase in fuel duty would raise around £1.4 million, but the Deputy is challenging it, saying that motorists are already contributing some £20m million in tax.
