Schools: Uniforms

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 11 March 2008, Official Report, column 371W, on VAT: uniforms, what discussions he has had with his European counterparts on the introduction of a reduced VAT rate for those items of school uniform that are not already VAT zero-rated.

The Government have not recently discussed this issue with European counterparts. A new legislative proposal on reduced VAT rates, and further EU discussions of them, are expected later this year.
