Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to extend the VAT zero rating to include all school uniforms; notes that currently parents must pay the full VAT on clothes for children aged 14 years and over or children who exceed the set size limits including school uniforms; urges the Government to scrap the size limit and make all school uniforms for primary and secondary schools VAT free; and believes that the change in law would be just, logical and affordable for the Government with huge financial benefits for parents.
