Fuel Bills

Asked about fuel bills and whether any measures brought in by the Government would be part of one package, the PMS said that announcements of that sort would be made in the Pre-Budget Report. No decisions on new measures had been taken and the Government was continuing to consider the best ways of meeting the challenge of lowering bills for the most vulnerable and to meet the challenge of high fuel prices.

  1. I read with interest that the French have had the price increase on fuel capped at 5%. No such luck on this side of the channel, we just put up with everything that is thrown at us. If the French object to anything they come out in protest and it is usually benefits them, take for instance the petrol blockade. We had a few lorries on the motorway and that was about it. We should take a leave out of the French’s book and stand up for ourselves. The Government could do a lot to help if it stopped giving away millions to places like Iraq. Look after the people of this country first and formost.
