Remove 5% VAT rate on gas and electric bills

Petition Details

Surely the general population would agree that one of the answers to the energy/living costs rising should be to stop charging a 5% VAT rate on our energy bills. Gas and Electricity are a necessity in the modern world. We would struggle to live without them especially the vulnerable.

Additional Information

Everything goes up in price every year to meet inflation and it doesn’t make any difference when we earn more money in our wages it never will until we see taxes being reduced not increases of an hourly rate (£ph) we know of other taxes they include
Council tax, income tax, national insurance, inheritance tax, stamp duty, vehicle excise duty (road tax), capital gains tax, corporate tax, consumption tax, fuel tax, etc. It’s clear to see that there are other ways of getting money from the public.
