Therefore, instead of a larger increase in any one year, I am committed to a €6 increase as a first step towards this target. It is the Government’s intention and my ambition to increase this steadily to meet the 2030 target. This increase will apply from midnight tonight to auto fuels but its application to other fuels will be delayed until May 2020, after the winter heating season. This measure will raise €90 million in 2020 all of which will be ring-fenced to fund new climate action measures which will protect the most vulnerable in our society; change how we travel-----
