Mohammed Bashir, Founder of Boro Taxis

Mohammed Bashir, founder of Boro Taxis, said: “There will be an enormous sigh of relief across the whole of the transport sector that speculation about a 2p rise in the level of fuel duty did not end up as one of the Budget’s money-raising measures.

“While fuel prices have fallen, the disproportionate amount of tax levied on petrol and diesel would have made a tax rise unjustified as well as being a real burden on those operating in the taxi, haulage and logistics industries.”
