French govt to suspend fuel tax hike amid protests: Report

Dec 04, 2018 14:20 IST

In a bid to end raging protests across the nation, France government is mulling suspension of fuel tax hikes as a measure. French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe will announce the suspension of tax hike on fuel planned for January 1 marking the first u-turn on a major policy by Emmanuel Macron since taking charge in 2017. This comes in a move to end the 'yellow vest' protests denouncing policy to squeeze country's household spending.
