VAT rise to 20% is permanent, hints David Cameron
Prime Minister David Cameron has suggested that the rise in VAT from 17.5% to 20% could be permanent.
He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show the government was trying to deal with the "structural budget deficit", therefore the 20% VAT level would be part of that structure, "so the changes we are making have to be pretty permanent too".
