The PRA has welcomed an initiative by Conservative MP and fuel tax campaigner Robert Halfon to draw attention to the ongoing loss of independent petrol stations and the pressures they are under from unfair competition and legislation.

He has tabled an Early Day Motion (EDM) in the House of Commons calling on the government to take action to halt the loss of independent petrol stations.

PRA chairman Brian Madderson said he had spoken to Halfon and he was very mindful of the plight of independent petrol retailers and that they were closing at a rate of 150-200 year.
