HC Deb 10 July 2000 vol 353 c439W
Mr. Boswell

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will reduce fuel taxation in order to reduce the current average price of fuel to March 2000 levels. [129272]

Mr. Timms

[holding answer 6 July 2000]: I have no plans to do so. Decisions on the appropriate levels of fuel duties are set on a Budget by Budget basis, taking account of the Government's economic and social objectives as well as the UK's environmental commitments.
