HC Deb 26 March 1999 vol 328 c449W
Mr. Whittingdale

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the level of duty on a litre of(a) leaded petrol, (b) unleaded petrol, (c) ordinary diesel and (d) ultra-low sulphur diesel in the year (i) 2001, (ii) 2005 and (iii) 2010 if the road fuel duty escalator is maintained at its present level.
