Magazines And Periodicals

EDM number 73 in 1993-94, proposed by Liz Lynne on 24/11/1993.

That this House views with concern the Government's threatened imposition of VAT on magazines and periodicals when to do so is likely to cause the loss of 1,700 magazine titles and 4,200 jobs and that as many as 1,000 magazines would move abroad to avoid the tax.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
