UIN 1384, tabled on 8 June 2015

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how he plans to implement the rural fuel rebate scheme in the KW12 postcode area which contains no fuel stations.

The Government used pump price data received through calls for information, as well as data previously held by HMRC, to help determine the list of areas to be included in its application to the European Commission for the extension of the rural fuel rebate scheme. Records show that a filling station in the KW12 postcode submitted evidence as part of the Calls for Information. While some areas may have been included in the Government’s application in which a filling station has since closed down, the areas met the strict criteria used for the application, and therefore new filling stations in these areas remain eligible to apply for the scheme.
