Tax is unfair on air ambulance crews

QUITE rightly the Lifeboats, (RNLI) don’t pay tax on the fuel they use in the saving of lives at sea.

The Air Ambulance has been going for many years and yet they have to pay fuel tax.

How mean and out of touch are the LibLabCon parties that have governed us?

Fuel tax for the Air Ambulance should have been made exempt years ago.

MPs should hang their heads in shame.

There is a petition to force Parliament to debate the issue on http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/29349.

Of course, there has to be more than 100,000 signatures.

However why do we have to challenge MPs to debate this? They should have taken the initiative to remove the tax themselves.
