Motion text

That this House notes the unprecedented downturn in on-street retail shopping due to Covid-19, calls upon the Chancellor of the Exchequer to radically reduce VAT rates for items purchased in store, which would offer much needed assistance to high street retailing in the face of the substantial increase in online shopping which has occurred since March 2020.
