Motion text

That this House recognises the need to take back control of the UK's taxes following the UK's departure from the EU and abolish VAT on energy bills; notes that cutting VAT on energy bills to zero could save households up to £65 on their energy bills; further notes that during the 2016 EU referendum campaign both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster stressed that energy bills would be lower after the UK left the EU; and calls on the Government to abolish VAT on energy bills and cut the cost of living for hard-pressed families across the UK.
