English Heritage has demanded the government supports a reform of European Regulations that would lower VAT on conservation work. EH believes a recently proposed revision of VAT regulations will be the 'only occasion this decade' when change will be possible.

It wants the government to lobby Brussels bureaucrats and MEPs to lower the rate from 17.5 per cent to a flat rate for all construction. It has produced a new leaflet, entitled 'VAT - seize the time', to use in a publicity campaign aimed at politicians and 'opinion formers'. For further information on EH's campaign, call 0870 333 1181.
