Although I try to keep up on most things the RPI is not something that I know enough about to instantly decide whether this will be good for Me / the motorist.

I do know that there have sometimes been large increases in the RPI when comparing 2 or 3 Years averages - it is calculated and published Monthly - I think from the Office for National Statistics [name may be wrong ?].

I believe that some Assured Tenancies Rent increases are calculated by following the RPI and a few Years ago I heard about some very large / unexpected increases for people that I knew for some Years in comparison to other increases calculated from association with the RPI in other Years.

I have doubts that our `Road Tax` will only be going up by about the £10.00 Yearly rises that most drivers have become used to.

Can someone tell me how the government justify increasing pensions and payouts (ie. money they pay out) by CPI, but increases to taxes (ie. money they collect in) by RPI, which is always more. Crooks the lot of them!

Pensions are increased by the highest of:

*growth in average earnings

*prices increases

*2.5 per cent

The only difference is you will not get a disc. You will still have to pay your RFL as before.

Do I have to pay ved on my 1973 Buick? I've just received the reminder asking for £225. I've read after the budget the free ved has been increased to 1974. I've tried ringing Dvla
(Joke) and my local post office is clueless. Your advice would be much appreciated.
