SNP to champion hauliers ahead of UK budget


In advance of today’s UK budget announcement prominent SNP politician Kenny MacAskill will issue a last minute appeal to the Chancellor to deliver a fair fuel package.

Visiting haulier David W Burns at his yard in Bonnyrigg MacAskill, the candidate for Edinburgh East in the election, will advance the case that the UK government should scrap its planned fuel duty increase and instead implement a fuel duty regulator.

Mr MacAskill will be joined by fellow SNP candidates Christine Grahame (Midlothian South Tweedale & Lauderdale) and Colin Beattie (Midlothian North & Musselburgh) at the hauliers’ yard.
