Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 2 - Rate of duty on beer (15 May 2003)

Michael Jack: ...on which I would be grateful for his comments. Every time the Government of the day return to the hackneyed old favourite of raising money by revalorisation—on this occasion, of the duty on beer—we hit a problem. I had not realised that one of the effects on the product itself was a potential downgrading of some of our better known beers. I declare an interest. I am principally a wine...

Scotch Whisky Bill (11 Dec 1987)

Harry Cohen: ...that the product sold should be of the nature, quality and substance demanded. Unscrupulous landlords may endeavour to get away with it and the difficulty is catching them. When one goes into a pub and asks for a pint of beer, the barman or bar lady sometimes says, "OK," and goes round to the other bar to pour out the drink out of sight. There is a distinct danger of that happening with...

Written Answers — Treasury: Beer: Excise Duties ( 8 Feb 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: While Government recognises the importance of supporting the beer and pub industry, beer duty raises important revenue for public services such as the NHS and helps to protect public health. Nevertheless, the Government keeps all taxes under review and any major announcements will be made at fiscal events.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Monopolies and Mergers Commission (19 Jul 1989)

Francis Maude: It was right for us to respond to the report in the tough way that we did and to take the steps that we proposed, which will allow 11,000 more public houses to buy their beer at the cheapest price and from whoever they want. I urge pub customers to look round and find the best price for the beer that they want to buy. Not every brewery has increased its prices, by any means. There is a market...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) ( 1 Nov 2018)

Mike Wood: I have only a few seconds. The measures announced on Monday—a freeze in beer duty and a third off business rates—are expected to help up to 19,000 pubs to be between £3,000 and £8,000 a year better off. The British Beer and Pub Association reckons that will safeguard 3,000 jobs in the sector, which in turn means that more people will be earning an income and paying taxes—this will...

John Grogan: What is the Treasury's attitude to proposals by the Campaign for Real Ale and the British Beer and Pub Association to the European Commission that countries should be allowed to levy a lower rate of duty on draught beer, thus helping pubs in the same way as a lower rate of duty on small brewers has helped them?

Brewing Industry (20 Nov 1996)

Mrs Angela Knight: ...trends and changes in drinking patterns have also played their part. Over the past 30 years or so the main drink of practically every country in Europe has declined as a proportion of the whole: beer is down in beer-drinking countries and wine is down in wine-drinking countries. The industry has responded to these changes in consumption. At retail level, it has reassessed the pub...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Alcoholic liquor duties: rates ( 7 Jul 2016)

Damian Hinds: Clause 143 sets out changes to alcohol duty rates from 21 March this year. It was announced in the Budget that the duty on beer, spirits and most ciders would be frozen this year and that the duty on most wines and higher-strength sparkling cider would rise with inflation. With those changes, we continue to support the pub industry, which plays such an important part in British cultural...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Community Pubs (28 Nov 2016)

Andrew Percy: I note my hon. Friend’s interest as chairman of the all-party beer group. I am happy to work with local authorities to develop community pubs. Listing a pub as an asset of community value gives communities time to bid to buy it should the owner decide to sell. We have supported community buying through the £3.6 million “More than a Pub” programme.

Orders of the Day: Finance Bill (21 Apr 2008)

Eric Illsley: ...are in the Bill and were announced in the Budget. I declare an interest: I am the honorary adviser to the northern Federation of Licensed Victuallers Associations, which, like most people in the pub industry, is concerned about the increases in alcohol duties, particularly that on beer. Duties on other alcohol are not as punitive and are not having the same effect on the pub industry. It...

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Beer: Competition ( 6 Feb 2014)

Jennifer Willott: ...contribution that local brewers and pubs make to the fabric of local communities, and to jobs and growth in the wider economy. Government measures to support brewers include the abolition of the beer duty escalator and the capping of business rate increases to 2% in 2014-15. The access of local brewers to pubs depends on the outcome of commercial negotiations between brewers and pub...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Alcohol and Fuel Duty (12 Mar 2013)

Greg Mulholland: Turning to the other escalator, the nonsensical beer duty escalator, I can give my right hon. Friend good news: there are now around 1,000 breweries in this country, the highest number for 70 years, because of the explosion in micro-breweries due to fairer and lower beer duty. Now that the Government are rightly going to tackle overcharging by the pub companies, which will allow more access...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 2 Apr 2014)

David Cameron: I thank my hon. Friend for what he said about the cut in beer duty, which is the second in a row in the Budget. It is about making sure that the industry creates jobs and about supporting our pub trade. It was noticeable that straight after the Budget Marston’s announced 3,000 additional jobs. We want to look very carefully at what is happening in tied pubs and at the activities of some pub...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Permitted development: use clauses and demolition of drinking establishments (13 Dec 2016)

Gavin Barwell: ...him so that he at least knows where I start from. First, the hon. Gentleman will know that the current Government, and the coalition Government who he supported, have done a lot to try to help our pub industry. There is the community pub business support programme, which is providing more than £3.5 million of funding for people to buy their local pub. There is the community right to bid,...
