For those of you not UK based, the UK Government has launched a website where petitions can be created.

If a petition receives 100,000 or more supporters, it is guaranteed a full debate in parliament.

Speaking to Tachoblog, FairFuelUK’s campaign manager Peter Carroll said, “There are rumours that the government is trying to identify ways of stimulating the economy without compromising its deficit reduction strategy.

“One answer is to cut fuel duty. Recent figures released by the Treasury have shown that fuel duty is so high that the Treasury has actually collected less money from it, as people and businesses have just not been able to afford it.

“Therefore, a fuel duty cut could actually increase tax revenues, increase growth and lower inflation.

“There is a sense of frustration that the politicians appear not to be looking at this as an option.

“That’s why it’s vital that we reach 100,000 on the e-petition and secure the Parliamentary debate as soon as possible.”

The FairFuelUK campaign is backed by the RAC, with over 7,000,000 members, the Freight Transport Association (FTA), and the Road Haulage Association (RHA), together with over 180,000 members, and has the support  of 150 MPs.
