Department for Culture Media and Sport ‘sympathetic’ to Tourism VAT reduction

During Parliamentary Questions in the House of Commons, the Minister for Tourism said her department was sympathetic about the case for a Tourism VAT reduction. Excerpt below:

Mark Williams MP, Liberal Democrat, Ceredigion

The figures alluded to by the Minister, not least those for Wales, are welcome, but what assessment has she made of the further impact on the industry of the reduction in VAT on tourism and visitor attractions?

Tracey Crouch MP,  The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport

The Department and I are sympathetic towards cutting VAT on attractions and accommodation. However, the industry needs to make that argument to the Treasury, not to us.
