Quentin Willson tells Osborne, 'cut duty, reduce deficit'

Fuel campaigners are meeting the Chancellor George Osborne to discuss the proposed rise in fuel duty.

The increase, which is due to take effect in August, has already been delayed from January.

Campaigners say the impact will be disastrous for families and small firms and point to the recent rise in diesel costs, which last week hit a new record high of 143.7p.

Motoring journalist Quentin Willson told the BBC's Breakfast programme that cutting duty will help reduce the deficit.
