Logistics industry reacts to Chancellor’s Budget

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne delivered his Summer Budget yesterday, announcing that fuel duty will remain frozen this year. 

Campaign group FairFuelUK welcomed the that there was no increase, but questioned why the treasury did not commit to a cut to duty. 

FairFuelUK co-founder Howard Cox commented that a cut in duty would benefit the economy, arguing that simply freezing duty is preventing higher growth levels and the creation of more jobs. 

The introduction of a new roads fund, which will see road tax spent on repairing Britain’s road network, was also included in the Budget.
