FTA calls on Osborne to cut fuel duty

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) is lobbying the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, to cut fuel duty by three pence per litre in his Autumn Statement.  

The FTA said that the cuts would provide much needed relief for motorists and operators, thereby creating jobs and boosting the national economy. 

In a letter to Mr Osborne, David Wells, chief executive at the RHA, also called on the Chancellor to do more to tackle the industry’s skills shortage and improve roadside facilities for drivers.
