For immediate release.
Whilst the ABD welcomes any measures which may be introduced to help those hard pressed industries, it calls for all road users to remain united in their demand for a universal cut in fuel duty.
Tony Vickers, the ABD's fuel tax campaign co-ordinator said, "What shook the government as much as the speed with which the pumps ran dry was the overwhelming support of the private motorist for the protestors' action. We must not let the government employ divide and rule tactics. Anything less than a significant cut in fuel duty is unacceptable."
ABD Chairman Brian Gregory concluded: "If ministers defy the legitimate grievance of 30 million voters they will pay dearly at the ballot box."
