Hull MPs launch 'Stop the Caravan Tax' petition

Apr 27, 2012

Hull North MP Diana Johnson will be launching a cross-party Commons petition against the Coalition's Caravan Tax.

The proposal to levy 20% VAT on static caravans was in the Coalition's recent Budget and would cost thousands of jobs in East Yorkshire's caravan industry, their suppliers and from the wider UK holiday industry.

The Hull North MP is due to be joined on Saturday (28 April) from 2pm in Hull's Queen Victoria Square by former Deputy Prime Minister and Hull East MP Lord John Prescott, Hull West and Hessle MP Alan Johnson and Hull East MP Karl Turner.
