PM hints at charity song tax break

Campaigners for a tax break on sales of a charity single in aid of the families of Liverpool supporters killed in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster have been told by David Cameron to expect good news.

The version of the Hollies' hit He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother by The Justice Collective will help cover the families' legal costs.

Pressed on whether it could benefit from a VAT waiver granted to previous such singles, the Prime Minister told MPs: "The Chancellor of the Exchequer is currently on the other side of the Atlantic but as the First Lord of the Treasury I think I can confidently predict there will be a decision that will go down well in Merseyside.''

There was no immediate confirmation from the Treasury of the VAT move - which Chancellor George Osborne has already applied to the X Factor winner's charity single.

It had previously said a decision would be taken after Wednesday's High Court ruling, which quashed the original accidental death verdicts returned on the 96 who died and ordered a fresh inquest.

The Hillsborough song features artists like Paul Heaton, Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson and Spice Girl Mel C.

Bookies make it the odds-on favourite to take the coveted Christmas number one chart spot.

The move was backed by Labour leader Ed Miliband.
