Beer duty cut a huge boost says Burton’s MP


Wednesday 20th March 2013 (Andrew Griffiths)
Beer duty cut a huge boost says Burton’s MP

Today’s announcement by the Chancellor is a huge boost for Britain’s brewers, publicans and hard pressed beer drinkers alike.

By scrapping Gordon Brown’s hated beer duty escalator and cutting the duty on a pint, George Osborne has helped to support community pubs across the country. George Osborne is the first Chancellor since 1959 to cut beer duty, meaning that you would have to be 72 to have enjoyed a pint to celebrate on that day.

By axing the duty escalator, the Chancellor has gone a long way to saving the Great British pint.
