This report is the fourth progress report of the committee. The committee believes that restructuring the existing transport taxation system to remove standing charges on vehicles and replace these charges with an equivalent fuel tax is the most important action which could be immediately taken by the government to assist fuel conservation in this country. Such a move would be non - inflationary in the long term, produce an immediate reduction in fuel consumption, remove the encouragement produced by the present system to amortise high standing costs by the use of more fuel and be an essential first step to motivate the community towards all the other proposed fuel - saving options (car pooling, smaller cars, etc.).
