§ Mr. Squire
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider a further reduction in the duty on unleaded petrol in order to encourage its greater use.
§ Mr. Peter Lilley
The duty differential in favour of unleaded petrol is reviewed each year in the run-up to the Budget, and Customs and Excise have recently concluded a consultation exercise. Decisions on excise duty rates are matters for my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Budget judgment.
