§ 22. Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received about the levying of value added tax on professional soccer.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
Only a few letters. Since the Bradford tragedy, there have been suggestions that VAT is a hindrance to ground improvements; but professional football clubs are registered for the tax, and subject to the normal rules can recover any VAT incurred on such works.
