THE MP for Gosport has backed calls for a Parliamentary debate on fuel prices.

Following an e-petition which attracted more than 105,000 signatures, Caroline Dinenage has pledged her support for a motion on fair fuel.

It will call on the government to address the pressure motorists are under due to escalating fuel prices.

The debate, subject to official Parliamentary confirmation, is now scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 15.

With the average price of petrol in Gosport hitting 134.8p a litre, Ms Dinenage wants the government to take action.

She said: ‘Tens of thousands of people across my constituency have been hit by extortionate fuel prices. From hardworking families to struggling local businesses, everyone is feeling the pinch. It is time to take real action on this issue to alleviate the burden my constituents face.’
