Will you sign the e-petition against the beer duty escalator? The Government takes a huge amount of tax – a 1/3 of each pint you drink goes in tax.
It’s a fact
• Brits pay the second highest rate of beer tax in the EU
• Beer tax has been hiked by 42% since 2008 and it is set to increase yearly by 2% above inflation
• The brewing and pub industry supports 1 million jobs around the UK
• Over 4,500 pubs have closed since 2008
If we can help generate 100,000 signatures (it was around 86,000 when we last looked) we can trigger a Parliamentary debate. epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/29664/?friendly_id=saveyourpint
