Motion text

That this House recognises that people and businesses are being hit hard by soaring fuel prices; notes that the exorbitant price of fuel is compounded by taxes which have put financial pressure on hard-pressed families as well as struggling businesses; further notes with concern the Government's plans to apply a three pence rise in fuel tax later this year; calls on the Government to mitigate the rising fuel prices and scrap the three pence rise in fuel tax; and urges the Government to set up a commission to look at ways of re-assessing value added tax levels.
