Effect Of Tax On Scotch Whisky Industry

EDM number 1037 in 2016-17, proposed by Alistair Carmichael on 08/03/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Cultural heritage, Service industries and Taxation.

That this House notes that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has increased excise duty on Scotch Whisky by 3.9 per cent in the Spring Budget; understands that the tax burden on the average priced bottle of Scotch Whisky is now 79 per cent; recognises that this level of taxation undermines the competitiveness of a key Scottish and UK industry; further notes that the Prime Minister has called Scotch Whisky, a truly great Scottish and British industry; and calls on the Government to introduce greater tax fairness for Scotch Whisky and to review the flawed excise duty system.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
