These MPs are members of the newly formed FairFuelUK All Party Working Group in the House of Commons which is fighting for lower pump prices. The formation of the group was inspired by Robert Halfon Member of Parliament for Harlow working in conjunction with the FairFuelUK campaign. http://www.fairfueluk.com/
After the ‘car push' the Group will lead a delegation to the door of Number 10 and hand in a letter for the Prime Minister. The letter will set out the urgent need for the Government to pressure Oil companies to pass on reductions in the cost of Oil and for the Government to abandon its plan to increase fuel duty in January 2012. This January increase could add up to 4 p per litre.
The FairFuelUK campaign is supported by the RAC and the trade bodies that represent over 20,000 UK road freight companies, the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and Freight Transport Association (FTA) and has the support of over 170,000 members of the public.
