B&Q Campaign on VAT on Green Goods & Cheaper Energy Monitors

We do not usually do commercial advertising but we were happy to hear the B&Q has launched a campaign for reduction of VAT on Green Goods. Also for a while they are taking the VAT off their range of Energy Monitors
B&Q launches campaign to cut VAT on 'green goods'

B&Q sales down 9% "B&Q, the UK’s largest home improvement and garden centre retailer, is today launching a petition for customers, colleagues and MPs to sign up to its campaign to get the VAT reduced on green goods.      
Customers will be encouraged to sign up to the campaign by posting their support in a giant green piggy bank in store.  

B&Q believes energy saving should be affordable for all and when surveyed, 95 per cent of its customers agreed that reducing VAT would encourage them to buy energy efficient products.  And in an energy saving move B&Q will from this week pay the VAT on energy monitors meaning customers will be able to benefit from an extra 12.5 per cent off."
