Mc Conalogue pledges to oppose any move to increase diesel duty

Charlie McConalogue

Donegal Deputy Charlie McConalogue has called on Fine Gael to confirm that it will not move to hike up the rates of duty on diesel fuel, claiming that to do so would amount to an attack on communities all across the border.

There has been some speculation that the Government will move to hike the rates of duty on diesel fuel in the upcoming budget a move the Fianna Fail Deputy says would be a mistake.

Deputy McConalogue believes it would put great pressure on border businesses and be a further burdern to hard pressed motorists - he says he will be strongly opposing it.........
