Budget statement from Startline Motor Finanace

Paul Burgess, CEO, Startline Motor Finance, said:

“Overwhelmingly, this was a Budget aimed at voters rather than businesses, with the general election only a matter of months away. We carried out some research a couple of weeks ago that showed what motorists overwhelmingly want from the next government – whoever that turns out to be – is to resolve the pothole crisis and bring down fuel costs. The chancellor has maintained the longstanding fuel duty freeze and recent reduction, so there is an argument that they have at least listened a little, but whether any of this is sufficient to turn the political dial in their direction after a long period when polling has indicated that most voters feel it is time for a change, is very much open to question.”
