Justin Madders MP Labour MP for Ellesmere Port & Neston
Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is calling for the Chancellor to ‘Axe the Reading Tax’ on e-publications.
At an event held by the ‘Axe the Reading Tax’ campaign, the National Literacy Trust unveiled new research which finds that young people who are the most engaged with reading are more likely to read both on paper and on screen.
“The National Literacy Trust’s new research shows the considerable benefit to young peoples’ literacy and engagement that reading on both digital and print materials can have.
“We need to do all we can to encourage young people to read and for this reason, I fully support the campaign to ‘Axe the Reading Tax’ on e-publications to provide equal access to reading for all.”
