House of Commons: Labour loses fuel duty vote

An attempt by Labour to delay a planned rise in fuel duty has been defeated by 282 votes to 234 - a government majority of 48.

Labour had proposed that the 3p a litre rise, due in January, should be put off until April to help struggling households and businesses.
