Rugby MP Mark Pawsey has urged the government to cancel its fuel duty increases scheduled for January.

Mr Pawsey said he acknowledges the difficult situation faces by the government to save money but is calling for the potential rises to be scrapped.

He said: “The cost of fuel affects everyone from those living in rural villages around Rugby who rely on their cars for school runs, work and their weekly trip to the supermarket to the local haulage firm who run a host of vehicles and employ a number of people from the town. High costs affect all of us and this is why we need to do all we can to scrap the planned duty increases.”

Mr Pawsey said he had been contacted by many constituents who have expressed concern about the planned rises for next year.
