Peter Aldous backs calls for rethink on VAT on static caravans

Peter Aldous joins MPs calling on the Government to rethink proposals to introduce VAT on sales of static caravans as the change will impact on local jobs.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Does my hon. Friend agree that the Treasury has failed to take full account of the impact of the proposal on jobs, which will cascade all the way down from manufacturers to small and medium-sized enterprises? Moreover, it will be concentrated in particular parts of the country, such as his constituency and mine, which will not be able to take that extra impact.

Mr Stuart: There is great fragility in isolated, sparsely populated rural areas. How many other jobs are there in such areas? Indeed, what other jobs could there be? The truth is that often there are none.
