The government has decided to freeze fuel duty, prime minister Theresa May told delegates to the Conservative Party conference on Wednesday.

She confirmed that when the chancellor delivers the budget on 29th October there will be no change to duty rates for diesel and petrol.

The Road Haulage Association and Freight Transport Association had both called on Chancellor Philip Hammond to cut fuel duty, arguing that reducing rates would provide a significant stimulus to the economy.
