Motion text

That this House notes that bureaucrats in Europe are planning to push up the price of petrol by four pence a litre by dictating green fuel targets to Britain; is concerned that EU regulations now insist that 10 per cent of UK transport fuel must come from biofuels by 2020 at thelatest, which will hike UK fuel prices for motorists who are already struggling to fill up the family car; and therefore calls on the Government to continue its work in keeping fuel duty down andto stand up again for hard-pressed Brits.
