HC Deb 24 July 1979 vol 971 c154W
Mr. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will take steps to arrange for prices and tax to be separately indicated on labels and receipts for all goods and services.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

I am keeping this matter under review. However, the Consumer Protection Advisory Committee recommended that, generally speaking, prices displayed to consumers should be VAT-inclusive. As far as commercial customers are concerned, I understand that VAT is normally shown separately on invoices.
