Could Cornwall win a u-turn on the pasty-tax?
Treasury Minister David Gauke is promising to look again over the 50p hike.
"We are considering constructive suggestions very closely. We are aware of the difficulties which have been reported in operating a test based on ambient temperatures. I also hope I've explained that we've undertaken a genuine consultation and will respond as quickly as possible and we are listening to all the arguments made".
It comes as Cornish MPs campaign to stop the rise.
St Austell and Newquay's Stephen Gilbert is leading it: "At the moment the government are suggesting something that will be unenforceable by the Revenue and Customs, it will be undeliverable by businesses and it will be confusing and unfair to customers".
South-East Cornwall's Sheryll Murray says temperature testing is ridiculous: "Surely, the last thing we need is to employ an army of thermometer-wielding tax inspectors, travelling around our bakeries poking our pasties to see if they have cooled enough".
