Congestion Charge Could Replace Fuel Duty

A think tank group have suggested that one way of lowering the price of petrol would be to replace fuel duty with a congestion charge.

The suggestion comes as the Institute for Fiscal Studies,who were reviewing the UK tax system said they found it to be inefficient and complex.

Paul Johnson, director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, said “Successive governments have failed to set out a coherent strategy for tax. As a result the current set of taxes is complex and often incoherent and they impose a much greater cost on the economy than need be,”.
