HC Deb 02 November 2000 vol 355 cc606-7W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much fuel duty has derived from the taxation of alternative fuels; and what percentage this represents of the total tax on road fuel, since the most recent Budget. [135651]

This represents a growth of over 160 per cent. on receipts from the similar period last year.
