Following the Government's decision to tax the sale of static caravans at 5% instead of 20% Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart had this to say:
I am relieved that the Government listened to the arguments, took people’s concerns on board, and decided on a much more reasonable tax on static holiday caravans.
Everyone knows the challenges of tackling the deficit if our children andgrandchildren aren’t to be saddled with huge levels of debt. That’s why theGovernment has to look at every possible source of revenue. But they also have tolisten – which they did – and thousands of jobs will be safeguarded as a result.
