David continues to campaign for scrapping of the “Caravan tax” as members present petition


David, together with other East Yorkshire MPs, continued to campaign for a scrapping of the so-called “caravan tax” which- it is feared- will seriously harm the local caravan manufacturing industry, which constitutes up to 95% of all British production.
