To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he plans to take steps to mitigate the recent increase in the cost of motoring for people and households on low incomes who rely on their vehicle for work.

In recognition of high prices at the pump and the fact that fuel represents a major cost for households and businesses, the Chancellor announced at the Autumn Budget 2021 that fuel duty would remain frozen for a twelfth consecutive year. This benefits consumers across the UK, including low-income households who rely on their vehicles for work, and represents savings worth almost £8 billion over the next five years.
All taxes, including fuel duty, remain under review.
