My hon. Friend makes an excellent point.

The Government’s impact assessment suggests that sales will drop by 30% as a result of VAT on static caravans. That would be disastrous for the static caravan manufacturing industry in Hull. I appeal to the Government to listen to the representations that have been made from both the Opposition and the Government Benches and to think again. The measure will be disastrous for that industry.
