Rejected petition Lower VAT to 15% after Brexit

In 2011, the Government increased VAT to 20% to help with the deficit. Now the Government has declared the end to austerity. Surely its time to look at helping people and businesses (especially the high street) after Brexit by decreasing VAT. This will help lower costs & put money in peoples pockets
