Re: A bit out of date?

The latest statistics I can easily find (https://www.ifs.org.uk/bns/bn09.pdf) (2016) showed fuel tax in the UK bringing in £27.6Bn, or 3.9% of government income.

Somehow I doubt that the UK government's commitment to electrifying the transport sector will also come with a commitment not to somehow collect an equivalent amount of cash.
