Budget 2013: Beer duty cut and petrol duty frozen

20 March 2013 Last updated at 15:06 GMT

A planned rise in fuel duty has been cancelled, while beer duty has been cut by 1p.

Chancellor George Osborne said the alcohol duty escalator - which adds inflation plus 2% to the price - would be abolished for beer.

However, planned rises for other alcoholic drinks will go ahead.
