Richard Holden's Petrol and Diesel Prices at Consett Supermarkets Campaign Receives an Update from Morrisons.
Richard: "I'm campaigning to tackle the massive price differential of up to 10p/litre between Consett and Bishop Auckland. Earlier this week I raised it at the Public Accounts Committee with the Chief Civil Servant at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
Morrisons have now been in touch - they’ve accepted there is an issue and have knocked 1p off petrol and diesel in #Consett. However, I don’t think this is anywhere near far enough. I won’t be fobbed off and I’ll continue to press directly and via Parliament and Ministers for action on behalf of my #NorthWestDurham constituents.
Sadly, Tesco have still not responded.
Good to see the The Northern Echo have picked up on the campaign too >>> http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/.../19845864.county.../
I will continue to pursue this issue on behalf of my constituents. Please look out for further updates."
