Cardiff Central against the VAT rise sign now

Not only is Wales suffering with savage cuts we have also had unfair tax rises. VAT is one of the most regressive taxes, hitting people on poorer incomes harder than anyone else. It is also a tax that affects pensioners.

As well as affecting people's pockets, the VAT rise is also affecting the NHS budget in Wales. Ann Jones AM writing for Labour List showed that the VAT rise alone will remove an extra £20.7m next year from the Welsh NHS budget.

This petition is for those in Wales who think the VAT rise is deeply regressive and call on the government to reverse this decision before the the rise is due to come in on 1st January 2011.
