Petition presented to the House but not read on the Floor
VAT on Static Caravans
The Petition of residents of Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill,
Declares that the Petitioners believe that levying VAT on static holiday caravans would cost thousands of jobs in caravan manufacturing, from their suppliers, and in the wider UK holiday industry; and notes that the Petitioners believe that such a levy would lose revenue for the Government.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to reverse its decision to levy VAT on static caravans.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Mr Tom Clarke.]
