This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government

Rejected petition Save our Savouries - Say No to VAT - JOIN THE NATION’S CRUSADE AGAINST SAVOURY VAT!

More details

To the House of Commons,

The petition of customers and staff of Greggs plc and other businesses, declares that the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s budget proposals to introduce 20% VAT on savoury products served above ambient temperature will adversely impact the public at a time when they can least afford it; and that savouries that are not held hot should not be considered as hot takeaway food and should be zero rated for VAT.

The petitioners therefore request
that the House of Commons urges the Government to reconsider its proposals to levy VAT on freshly baked savouries which are cooling down in an ambient counter.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
