Petition Reverse Government plans to abolish the Furnished Holiday Lettings tax regime

Furnished Holiday Lets contribute a huge amount to local economies. They support jobs (cleaners, property managers, plumbers, etc.) and provide thousands of customers to local shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions. We want the Government to reverse its plans to abolish the FHL tax regime.

More details

We believe that abolishing the FHL tax regime will hurt local economies and cost jobs in various sectors, and do little to solve the housing crisis in the UK.

For the sake of tourism across the UK and businesses which rely on tourism, please reconsider this approach.

What is a Westminster Hall debate?

Westminster Hall is the second chamber of the House of Commons. Westminster Hall debates give MPs an opportunity to raise local and national issues and receive a response from a government minister. Westminster Hall debates are general debates that do not end in a vote.
