Batten (London): UKIP still backs campaign

Mr Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP for London, re-iterates the party's support for low-tax diesel


In a short statement to MBM, Mr Gerard Batten, the UK Independence Party’s MEP for London, has re-iterated the party’s support for low-tax diesel.

Mr Batten is a long-time supporter of the MBM campaign, and spoke to the European Parliament on the subject as early as March 2006.

Following Mr Batten’s support, UKIP became the first party to commit to saving red diesel, in May 2006.
