MP wants fuel price rise plan scrapped
DERBY North MP Chris Williamson has called on Chancellor George Osborne to scrap the 3p-a-litre fuel duty rise planned for January.
Mr Osborne is due to deliver his Autumn Statement on Wednesday and there has been speculation the Chancellor will postpone the increase in the price of petrol.
Mr Williamson said it needed to be axed to "help people on low and middle incomes", as well as businesses and the economy.
He said: "The cost of living is rising and economic recovery is fragile. People in Derby are really feeling the squeeze from the Government's VAT rise – which has added 3p to the price of a litre of petrol – and deep cuts to things like tax credits.

"So, delaying January's fuel duty rise, at least until April, would provide some much-needed financial relief."
