Nigel Dodds challenged George Osborne in the Commons this week over UK fuel duty, which is among the highest in the EU.

"What will the Chancellor do to remedy that much-unwanted achievement?" The freeze on petrol duty will continue "for the rest of the current parliament, provided that we can find the savings to pay for it," Osborne replied.

"If we do not have an economic plan, we cannot have a living standards plan."
