Maria Eagle MP, Labour's Shadow Transport Secretary, said in response to David Cameron's reheated promise today to look again at fuel prices:

"Motorists won’t be fooled by David Cameron’s reheated promises to look again at fuel prices. He's promised a fuel duty stabiliser before and hasn't delivered.
"His warm words won't mean much to motorists who this week have seen a VAT rise forcing up prices at the pump.
"With rail fares up by an unacceptable 10 per cent on many routes commuters are being hit in the pocket whichever way they try and get to work."
