‘Axe the Beer Tax’ Campaign

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has given her support to the campaign being run by the British Beer and Pub Association against tax hikes on beer in this year’s Budget. Central to the ‘Axe the Beer Tax’ campaign is to persuade the government to abolish plans to increase beer tax further.


Meg said:


‘I have given my support against VAT increases on beer this year in recognition of the current economic climate. I am also of the opinion that planned VAT increases in subsequent years should be reviewed to reflect future economic situations. This would help protect pubs many of which play a pivotal part in the life of communities. I recognise the British Beer and Pub Association’s efforts in protecting these British institutions and I hope the government takes on board its concerns.’


The Chancellor announced plans in last year’s Budget for a tax escalator scheme which would see a 2% tax increase above the inflation rate per year from 2009- 2013. This year’s Budget statement by the Chancellor to the House of Commons is on 22nd April.
