|We need your help in our continuing fight to persuade the Government to cut fuel duty on petrol and diesel. We are asking if you might be able to join us during the afternoon of Wednesday 7th March in the House of Commons?
Last year, with your help, we saw off rises that would have put another 9p per litre on the cost of every litre of petrol and diesel. That was important, but petrol & diesel remain far too expensive. In fact, diesel is almost record levels! We know from the reaction of Ministers and MPs that the FairFuelUK campaign has had a real impact on the Government. The thousands of letters and emails, the media events, the meetings with groups of MPs and our presence on the TV and Radio have had an enormous impact.
However, sometimes, it’s important that the politicians actually get to meet the people suffering because of an issue.
|To that end, we are holding a mass lobby of Parliament during the afternoon of Wednesday March 7th. As a citizen, you have the right to enter Parliament and ask to see your MP. This right is centuries old. When lots of people agree to do this on the same day about the same issue is called a ‘mass lobby’
We understand that it’s probably not every day that someone suggests such a thing to you. However, we will only force a cut in fuel duty if the Government is persuaded of the depth of feeling on this subject. It may be that you could get a group from your company to come along. Even if you’d never normally come to an event like this, please consider coming and supporting this important event. It really will make a difference.
