HC Deb 04 December 1995 vol 268 c14W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will reduce the tax on low sulphur motor vehicle diesel to eliminate the retail price difference. [3750]

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

No. There are a number of new diesel products under development which will meet future environmental standards. I am not satisfied that any change in the duty structure would be justified.
