VAT On Public Transport

EDM number 2477 in 1992-93, proposed by Nick Harvey on 19/10/1993.

That this House views with concern the proposal of the imposition of VAT on public transport which would tax further Britain's already over-burdened public transport network at a time when attractive alternatives to the motor car are more important than ever; notes with alarm the recently announced rises in rail fares of up to four times inflation, which will further discourage potential travellers from using public transport and force more traffic onto the roads; and recognises that the imposition of VAT on top of such fares will hit the poor disproportionately and contradict the Government's own promises given on several occasions not to extend the scope of VAT.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
