Road Haulage

Asked if the Prime Minister had anything extra to say to road haulers and if not was he ready and planning for blockades, the PMS replied that it was important to bear in mind that even after the planned changes in fuel duty over the next year or so, by 2010, the main fuel duty rate would be 11% lower in real terms than they were in 1999. It was also important to recognise that the planned increase in fuel duty from next April was part of a revenue neutral budget package that involved cuts in the basic rate of income tax. Asked if there were contingency plans for blockades, the PMS said that the Government made contingency plans about all sorts of things all of the time.
