YOUR editorial regarding fuel laundering (Comment, May 1) is very relevant.
However, given that the practice could be stopped by selling duty-free diesel at full price to the customers entitled to use it (eg farmers) and requiring them to claim the duty back, it would appear that both governments are not sufficiently interested in stopping the fraud. Their claim that this action is too costly is nonsensical given the loss of duty and cost of trying to stop laundering.
