Lower fuel taxes for hauliers

Long distance lorry drivers will pay lower taxes on fuel under a scheme announced by the government yesterday.

The move is aimed at offsetting the new national truck charge, which is due to start in 2006.

But the scheme could have a sting in its tale, as the government said it was considering a two-tier tax system that would cost more for trucks using motorways than A-roads and other routes.

A environmental move was also suggested where trucks with more fuel-efficient engines and those with more axles – so causing less damage – would be charged less, reports the Financial Times.
