Tameside Action Day

March 12, 2012 3:52 PM

We have an action day planned this Saturday, 17th March in Ashton-under-Lyne. We will be out talking to local people about issues affecting them, and also collecting signatures on a petition calling for the government to make an immediate cut in fuel duty of 2.5 p per litre.

A report by The Centre for Economics and Business Research commissioned by FairFuelUK found that such an immediate reduction would not only help hard pressed taxpayers fill-up for less, but would also create an additional 175,00 new jobs within a year. Such a move would pay for itself because of the additional tax revenue. Targeted reductions in taxation, such as this one, is something that should be at the top of George Osborne's list.

If you would like to join us this Saturday, then please drop me a line, and I will send you more details.We have an action day planned this Saturday, 17th March in Ashton-under-Lyne.
