Cornwall Air Ambulance is welcoming the Chancellor's plans to relieve VAT on fuel for Air Ambulances.
Today's announcement is very positive news for us should we choose to buy our fuel direct in the future, and for many of our Air Ambulance colleagues throughout the UK who currently buy their fuel in this way, and have therefore been subject to VAT.
Cornwall Air Ambulance has been a strong supporter of the campaign to relieve VAT on fuel for many years through our collaboration with other Air Ambulances through our national body, the Association of Air Ambulances.
We look forward to continuing to work with MPs - on both a local and national level - to seek further pledges and assurances in the future to help ensure we can provide the best possible service to our patients at the best possible value for our donors.
– Paula Martin, Chief Executive of Cornwall Air Ambulance
