No tax rises on petrol, says Prime Minister Theresa May



Fuel duty is to be frozen for the ninth year in a row, the prime minister is to announce - saying the government is "on the side of "hard-working families".

 
Mrs May will tell the Conservative conference: "They are the people for whom this party must deliver."


A car is a necessity "not a luxury" for millions of people, she will add.


Last month, Chancellor Philip Hammond said the policy saved drivers money, but would cost the Treasury £38bn if it continued for another three years.
