I have been contacted by dozens of constituents who are concerned about the current level of duty on fuel.

I am pleased to say that the Backbench Business Committee has agreed that this should be debated in the House on 15th November. However, a debate does not mean that things will change in the immediate future.

I have grave reservations about the Government's use of e-petitions. These petitions potentially give a false hope to people who think that they will effectively grant a vote to change Government policy.
