David calls for retention of zero-rating of caravans


David, together with local East Yorkshire MPs- including Graham Stuart in Beverley and Holderness; Hull West and Hessle MP Alan Johnson, Hull North MP Diana Johnson and Hull East MP Karl Turner, called for the retention of the present zero-rating of tax on static caravans.

The recent budget put forward plans for a so-called “caravan tax” which, it is feared, would damage the caravan industry- which East Yorkshire currently dominates, and which provides thousands of local jobs.

In response, regional MPs- including David- have put forward an amendment to the Finance Bill which would see static caravans remain zero-rated.
