Duty On Cider

EDM number 389 in 2009-10, proposed by Alan Meale on 08/12/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Taxation.

That this House notes that duty paid on a pint of five per cent. alcohol cider is 29 pence less than is paid on a beer of equivalent strength; further notes that the UK Treasury could raise £400 million annually in additional revenue if cider duty were brought into line with beer duty; further notes that over 90 per cent. of UK cider is produced by three multinational companies; and calls on the Treasury to allow UK brewers to compete on equal terms by aligning cider and beer duty, whilst considering the introduction of some form of small producers relief to protect and support traditional local cider makers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
