English Heritage: VAT

Volume 488: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport at which of its venues English Heritage (a) reduced and (b) did not reduce the retail prices of tickets following the December 2008 reduction in value added tax. (258392)

English Heritage advises that following the reduction in VAT, it reduced admission prices on 1 December on all its properties open to the public. These were reduced to the nearest 10 pence price point so, in some instances, the saving is greater than the VAT change and in others slightly less. The VAT reduction has been passed on for all admission prices with the exception of some child prices where the change would amount to five pence or less.
