The environment secretary Michael Gove has set out plans to scrap VAT with a “lower simpler” sales tax should he become the next prime minister.
Gove is attempting to shift the issue of his admission of taking cocaine some 20-years ago when he was a journalist, to which he said he “deeply regretted.”
Gove wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that he pledges a “pro-business economic plan.”
“It would mean reducing the regulations which hold business back, cutting and reforming taxes, such as business rates which put pressure on small businesses and undermine our high streets, using the opportunity of life outside the EU to look to replace VAT with a lower, simpler, sales tax.”
