HILLSBOROUGH SINGLE GETS VAT BREAK

Chancellor George Osborne has confirmed that he will effectively waive VAT on the charity single that has been released to help raise funding for Families of Hillsborough victims. The Gary Barlow headed band, The Justice Collective, recorded a version of hit Hollies' hit He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother with a view of hitting the British number one spot at Christmas and raise money to cover their legal costs.

The Justice Collective includes artists like Paul Heaton, Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson and Spice Girl Mel C. Latest reports from the Official Charts Company state that the single has already overtaken sales of X Factor winner James Arthur.

The Chancellor said, 'These families have been campaigning for justice for almost 24 years. It's been a long journey so I'm pleased to be able to say the Government will effectively waive the VAT on sales of the Hillsborough single, ensuring that as much money as possible goes towards helping these families.'

All will be revealed during the chart countdown on Sunday on Radio 1.
