VAT: Home Information Packs

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether VAT will be levied (a) on the local authority search elements and (b) drainage and water search elements of home information packs. (158405)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 17 September 2007, Official Report, column 2243W, to the hon. Member for North-East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt). Drainage and water searches remain VAT standard-rated when supplied by a VAT registered business.
