Sweden is the latest country to propose a major VAT cut for the hospitality sector in order to create employment and cut restaurant prices.
The UK Treasury has already refused to consider a VAT cut to 5% claiming the "fiscal challenge" is too great. This is despite French lobbyist Jacques Borel, the man behind the 5.5% VAT cut in France, claiming a VAT cut could create up to 320,000 jobs in the UK.
the Publican's Morning Advertiser (PMA) campaign to get VAT cut to 5% - Thrive on Five - already has the backing of major pubcos and leading trade associations.
More than 3,000 people have signed a petition.
