Finance Bill — Report on Impact of Fuel Duty Changes — 3 May 2011 at 24:00

Michael Weir MP, Angus voted to require a report on the impact of changes to fuel duties.

The majority of MPs voted not to require a report on the impact of changes to fuel duties.

MPs were considering the Finance Bill 2011[1]. The text of the rejected amendment was:

  • amendment 7, page 12, line 36, at end add—
  • ‘(8) The Chancellor shall publish, within 3 months of the passing of this Act, an assessment of the impact of taxation on fuel prices.’

The amendment would have taken effect on clause 19 of the Finance Bill[2]; a clause titled "Fuel duties: rates of duty and rebates from 23 March 2011" which set out proposed changes to the rates of fuel duty.
