The building company Rok, is currently running a nationwide campaign to boost the UK economy and encourage the public to take an interest in the maintenance of their homes and community buildings. Rok is calling on the UK Government to lower the VAT on property repair work from 17.5% to 5 % and has launched a petition ...on the Downing Street website.
