TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to proposed VAT cut

For immediate release


Responding to the news that No 10 is considering cutting VAT, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Brits will be delighted that ministers have finally woken up to their calls for tax cuts.

“Taxes are the single biggest bill families face and rising rates are compounding the cost of living crisis. 

“Now is the time to help growth go gangbusters by giving taxpayers a respite from tax rises.”
