Excise Duties: Fuel Oil

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his Department’s estimate is of the amount which will be raised in revenue from (a) private cars, (b) light commercial vehicles, (c) heavy goods vehicles and (d) public service vehicles by the two pence increase in fuel duty announced in the 2009 Budget in its first 12 months. (276148)

As fuel duty is paid by fuel producers at the point when finished fuel products leave the relevant refinery or import terminal, the Treasury does not hold data for fuel duty revenues disaggregated by end use. Forecasts of the overall revenue gain expected from the 1 September 2009 fuel duty increase can be found in Table A.1 on page 153 of the 2009 Budget.
