£16m caravan tax plan cost to Wales claim park owners

Static caravans have been exempt from the tax since the 1970s, but the Chancellor unveiled the new proposals in last month's Budget.
Park owners have until today to contribute to a UK government consultation on plans to charge VAT on the sale of holiday homes.
More than 70 MPs have signed a motion opposing the plans, but the Prime Minister insists the tax is a fair one.
