Loyd Grossman: Cut 20% VAT on older building repairs

VAT is charged at 20% on repairs for old buildings, but there is no such tax on new constructions.

TV presenter Loyd Grossman makes the case for a tax cut for restoration and repairs of older buildings in a personal film where he goes through the keyhole at a site in east London.

He debates this film on Wednesday's Daily Politics with MPs Mark Harper and Caroline Flint, and the whole programme is on iPlayer for 30 days.
