HMRC Tells Farmers To Grit Off!
The recent snowy weather produced something of a contra temps between HMRC and some members of the farming community.
HMRC told the National Farmers Union not to use the lower-tax fuel when gritting.
Under current rules farmers can only grit roads if using tractors powered by white diesel (which is fully-taxed).
Red diesel can only be used in tractors on farmers' own farm tracks, or on public roads to clear routes of snow to allow feed deliveries or milk collections.
However, when a farmer intends to use grit on a clear road as a preventative measure he must use white diesel (ie drain his tank of red first and replace it with white).
Fair enough under normal circumstances.
However, during the coldest snap in thirty years or so do you not think that some common sense could have been applied and the rule temporarily put into abeyance?
Tax does have to be taxing.
