GRAHAM STUART MP acknowledged on Twitter tonight that the Government has “listened” on the Caravan Tax.
Delighted that #caravantax is to be 5% and delayed till next April. Great news for jobs. Congrats to campaigners and Ministers who listened.

Jack Blanchard, the Political Editor of the Yorkshire Post, reported from Westminster:
Final nail in coffin was report last wk concluding 4,370 jobs to go if #CaravanTax brought in. Insane for Govt supposedly pushing for growth
