    Default Red diesel duty hike lifeline ?

    The lifeline to the plight of escalating red diesel is surely the statement made by MBM as follows :-

    "We will be arguing very strongly that marine users should be paying the European minimum (around 20p per litre) rather than the current roadside diesel duty, which is 48.35p per litre. Currenly red diesel is taxed at 7.69p per litre"

    It will be seen that the increase will be 12.31p. I am not sure whether this is subject to an extra 5% vat payable on red diesel.

    I am a little surprised that nobody has responded to my potentially important comment as above and look forward to a response.
