Fuel Duty Rebate For Remote Islands
The European Commision has agreed in principle to a pilot scheme which would see a 5p fuel duty rebate for remote islands in Scotland.
While the discount would help, the average price for a litre of fuel would still be 10p more expensive than anywhere else in the UK.
Road Haulage Association Scotland director Phil Flanders welcomed the scheme as an "acknowledgment there is a problem" and said it should be extended across rural Scotland.
