David Cameron has denied the Government performed a U-turn by freezing fuel duty after Labour called the move "another case of panic at the pumps".  He told MPs: "The fuel duty increase was a Labour tax rise. It cannot be a U-turn to get rid of a Labour tax increase. They put in place 12 increases on fuel duty in government.
