REC Drivers throw weight behind campaign to scrap fuel duty increase

REC Drivers throw weight behind campaign to scrap fuel duty increase 
 
The Recruitment & Employment Confederations (REC) drivers group representing recruiters in the freight and logistics sector has today signed up to the FairFuelUK Campaign (FFUC).
 
As part of the FFUC, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) is working with other transport organisations to push for a cancellation of Aprils planned fuel duty increase. The campaign has continued to gather political momentum in the run up to the Budget on March 23.
 
Commenting on the issue Rod Harris, Chair of REC Drivers said:
 
The freight industry is essential to the nations supply chain and distribution of consumer goods throughout the UK. A cut in tax for diesel as well as petrol vehicles would mean a reduction in costs and a boost in operations.
 
Scrapping the increase on fuel duty would maintain the Governments current revenue levels while providing a helping hand to UK businesses by easing their tax burden.
 
To demonstrate our support and commitment to the freight and logistics sector we have signed up to the FairFuelUK Campaign to help pressure the Government to prevent the damaging duty increases that are planned for April.
 
Freight is one of the sectors where the UK is witnessing growth. Our group believes it is a shared responsibility to ensure this trend continues.
