TMBs 'Cautious Welcome' For 2013 Budget

The Tripe Marketing Board has broadly welcomed the Chancellor's 2013 Budget.  

Speaking at a trade luncheon earlier today, Sir Norman Wrassle, Chairman of the TMB said he was heartened that there had been no mention by George Osborne of any plans to impose a tax on tripe.

"Such a tax would have decimated our industry just as the first signs of recovery are starting to show through," said Sir Norman.

He went on to express a cautious welcome for the continued focus by the Government on its programme of sustained austerity: "Tripe is a foodstuff that will forever be associated in many people's minds with austerity, so this can only be good news for tripe retailers up and down the land."
