our commitment

The PRA provides a unique voice for independent fuel retailers through its lobbying activities with Government Ministers and their officials.

  • This ensures that the real issues experienced within our industry sector are understood and appreciated.
  • Examples of real successes due to sustained lobbying and where we continue to fight the causes include fuel duty, the unfair & anti-competitive business rates system, the rural site duty rebate scheme, energy resilience for road fuels, earlier introduction of the EC credit & debit card interchange fees, the call for an OFT Inquiry into fuel pricing to name just a few.
  • We were also successful in gaining Government support for a round-table industry forum held in October 2013 with the Minister for Energy & Business providing the keynote speech.

All the vital issues impacting independent retailers were discussed with the relevant stakeholders present. This provided an ideal opportunity for the PRA to enhance its credibility with Government as the “go to” organisation for 70% of all UK filling stations.
