Scrap VAT On Digital Books
Printed books are exempt from VAT, and quite rightly so. Nobody, surely, wants a tax on learning? But ebooks (the kind you get on Kindle and so on) are not.
This is a ridiculous inconsistency. I won't list the reasons why - you're smart people, you can work it out yourself.
So - please sign if you want the government to remove the VAT duty on digital books.

There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
