Welcoming the cancellation of the planned rise in fuel duty, Brian Donaldson, general manager of the Maxol Group said the move would have a meaningful impact on households.

“We are delighted with today’s outcome and believe that the Chancellor has made the right decision for Northern Ireland’s motorists.

“For most people in Northern Ireland a car is essential for daily life and for many years motorists have been an easy target for the Treasury.

“However, the fact that this government has frozen fuel duty on several occasions highlights that they have heard the voice of concerned consumers for whom fuel costs are a significant component of their weekly spending.”
