Graham Stuart lobbies both Prime Minister and Chancellor about Caravan Tax

GRAHAM STUART MP continues to press the Prime Minister and Chancellor to scrap the caravan tax.

This week the Beverley and Holderness MP has met separately with both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor to discuss the impact of the caravan tax.

In a news release Graham said, “I am delighted to confirm that the Government, at the highest levels, is continuing to listen to the arguments before deciding the right way forward on the caravan tax. I had a good and constructive conversation with the Prime Minister, who acknowledged our concerns and emphasised what a thorough and proper review was taking place.

“The Government is right to probe every area of taxation and expenditure given the toxic legacy left by Labour. This consultation and review is being taken forward in an exemplary fashion and I remain optimistic that we will achieve the right outcome both for East Yorkshire and the country as a whole.”

These talks follow a joint formal presentation of petitions on behalf of 64 constituencies opposing the caravan tax that took place in Parliament on Tuesday 22nd May 2012.
