Cut fuel duty now says BIFA
With budgets shortly to become hot topical debate, the British International Freight Association has said that the government needs to get serious on fuel duty and make cuts not postponement.
General Director, Peter Quantrill said ‘the associations members want long term certainty on fuel prices rather than incremental postponements’.
‘We would like to see the introduction of an essential user rebate and some form of fuel duty stabilisation mechanism’.
In addition to the fuel debate, congestion problems will also be high on the agenda.
BIFA has urged that those in power should not overlook the integral role of the freight transport industry who support economic success.
Quantrill also said; ‘we want to see some positive announcements about investment in transport infrastructure with congestion concerns alleviated as this is a major problem to our members management of customer supply chains’.
