Dear Supporters,

This update provides a round-up of a great period for the Campaign with lots of media coverage and new political support.
  • The Campaign was in Parliament on Tuesday to present to the Culture Media and Sport Committee Inquiry into Tourism. Members of the committee who spoke to us afterwards to compliment the strength of our evidence. To watch the inquiry session with Paul Kelly (BALPPA) and David Bridgford (Merlin Entertainments) and me click here.
     
  • The Sun led on national media coverage to highlight the thousands of jobs which would be created in the English regions, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Dermot King of Butlins was interviewed on Sky News – you can watch the recording here. 
     
  • Our supporters were involved in the huge amounts of regional coverage generated across the country. This included Scotland, Yorkshire, the South West, North West, East Anglia, and Wales. This is important because of the particular benefits to businesses outside the London tourism economy.
Also thanks to all of those businesses across the country who volunteered to be spokespeople – it really helped. Such was the response we didn’t manage to involve everyone who volunteered, but we’d like to do so in the future.

There is now serious industry and political pressure on Government to reduce tourism VAT - the Campaign has never been stronger and is continuing to grow. 

Thank you for your continuing support!

Graham Wason
Chairman
Cut Tourism VAT
