GIVE US VAT-FREE WINTER TYRES SAYS ROB

March 12 2013.

East Sussex say that all available resources were brought to bear on the problem yesterday.


We need to wake up to the fact that unless we are prepared to put winter tyres on our cars we will continue to have problems. There would be less accidents and less economic consequences through loss of business.

For these reasons in some countries winter tyres are compulsory. They are better in the wet too.

In the UK I think they should at least be VAT free. The economic and safety arguments are compelling and I will be writing to the minister for transport on this issue.
