STOP THE BED TAX IN WALES sign now

I/We support the petition to oppose any potential introduction of a 10 per cent BED TAX on all overnight accommodation, which is currently being examined by the Lyons Review into local government finance. Added to the 17.5\% of VAT tourists already pay, this would result in the UK becoming one of the highest taxed holiday destinations in Europe and could wipe up to 50 Million off annual accommodation revenues in Wales.

We also call upon all local and national politicians in Wales to rule out any future introduction of this tax on tourism, which will add 100 to the holiday cost of a family of four, pricing much of the tourism industry in Wales out of the market relative to cheaper destinations in Europe.

    We are appalled that this has been suggested. We have also benn subjected to rises in car-parking charges of 500\% which will also affect our tourist trade.

    The tax burden on UK residents is already too high. UK residents will certainly choose to go abroad for their holiday. We object most strongly.

    Seasonal work is short enough without putting an extra tax burden on these hard working people. Stop paying the SS scroungers for doing nothing if you need more money, most are working cash in hand and having benefits
