Motion text

That this House condemns the Government for its decision not to exempt commemorative headstones for graves from VAT, in contrast to all other services provided by an undertaker in connection with a burial or cremation; believes this to be a decision which takes advantage of people at their lowest time; and urges the Government to reconsider and lighten the heavy financial burden placed on people at a vulnerable time.
