Budget response from the Association of Fleet Professionals

Paul Hollick, chair, Association of Fleet Professionals, said:

“There’s some mixed feelings here. In a lot of ways, one of the wins this government can claim over the last 14 years is its commitment to electrification, and the impact that its policies have had on the fleet sector in terms of moving to zero carbon emissions have been marked and dramatic. However, the truth is that more assistance in this area is now required – especially when it comes to van electrification where there are fundamental issues to overcome as well the need for a further increased rollout of charging infrastructure – and there was no sign of that help arriving at any time soon. While minor moves such as the continued reduction of fuel duty is welcome, we very much hope to see more from whoever is in power following the next general election.”
