Cumbrian bakers join pasty tax protest in London

Bakery workers from Cumbria are among hundreds converging on Downing Street today to protest against the so called ‘pasty tax’.

Staff from Greggs’ Penrith bakery will be among protestors taking action against Chancellor George Osborne’s plans to add 20 per cent VAT to hot takeaway snacks.

The action was organised by Greggs and the National Association of Master Bakers.

Six representatives from the baking industry will later present a petition of nearly 500,000 signatures to 10 Downing Street.
