Challenge on caravan charges

By Tom Moseley

Controversial plans to impose VAT on static caravans have been approved - in spite of a backbench rebellion.

But the SDLP's Margaret Ritchi has not given up the fight.

The former party leader has tabled an Early Day Motion saying the change will hit an industry already rocked by the recession.

Ritchie says rural and coastal areas, like her South Down constituency, will be particularly badly affected.
