Petition No to VAT on The Cornish Pasty

In the Budget 2012 The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that VAT would be imposed on hot food. This will mean that Cornish Pasties will also incur 20% VAT. This will severly damage the Cornish economy and could damage employment in Cornwall too.

We call on the Government to reconsider this decision in the interests of the Cornish economy.
