Black Country MP John Spellar has added his voice to calls to the Chancellor for a further cut in beer duty in the next Budget.

 

John Spellar MP said ” I’m very pleased to join the call for a further cut in beer duty . Beer drinkers in the UK pay a much higher tax on each pint and a further cut will be a welcome boost to customers and pubs alike “

 

 

That this House welcomes the ending of the beer duty escalator and the impact of the unprecedented three successive beer duty cuts in the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Budgets, in supporting the growth of Britain’s breweries and underpinning confidence in the UK’s pubs; notes that this has led to an additional 19,000 vital jobs compared to the duty escalator and over £1 billion of investment in the sector expected this year; and urges the Government to sustain this momentum by considering a further cut in beer duty in the 2016 Budget which would secure pub jobs and help reduce the cost of living for hard-working people.
