Written Answers — HM Treasury: Fuels: Excise Duties (2 Nov 2017)

Andrew Jones: HMT continuously keeps the level of fuel duty under review, as we do with all taxes. The government has frozen fuel duty in every year from 2011 to lessen the impact of high fuel prices on households and business costs. In total, our action on fuel since 2010 has saved the average car driver £130 a year and the average van driver £350 compared to what they would have been paying...

Andrew Jones: The forecast impact of alcohol duty changes on Government revenues can be found in Table 2.1 of the Budget documents from Summer Budget 2015.

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley South (Mike Wood) on securing this well attended and enthusiastic debate. I participated in the Adjournment debate seven years ago—I remember it well. I take this opportunity to commend the work of both the all-party parliamentary beer group, which my hon. Friend the...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) on securing this debate. I understand his passion for the subject, given his constituency’s long-standing tradition of producing fine whiskies. He mentioned the Highland Park and Scarpa distilleries; I have been fortunate enough to visit his...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The right hon. Gentleman makes points that I broadly agree with. The signal that the UK supports the industry and recognises its impact on our economy and our exports particularly is entirely understood. In recognition of the quality of the product, Scotch whisky was one of the first food and drink products to feature in the Government’s GREAT campaign, which gave it high international...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: That tempts me towards Budget comments, which I cannot make at this moment. I need to rewind a little bit from that question and make a quick point before coming on to duty rates. The protected food name scheme remains in place while we are still a member of the EU. The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, which is currently passing through this place, will ensure that all EU law passes into UK...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point. I have to say, though, that I have been talking to the industry and will continue to do so. One thing I have learned in the preparation of Budgets is that a significant number of representations are made either for Government spending or relating to duty. My door is open. I want to hear from the industry and ensure it understands that it can access...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: That is a very interesting question, and it slightly tempts me into a Budget thought, which I am sure was entirely my hon. Friend’s intention. While not commenting on the Budget, I assure him that I am instinctively a low-tax Conservative. That is my principle when dealing with the industry, and I think that can be said of my predecessors in the Treasury, otherwise we would not have had...

Scotch Whisky Industry (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: That is an important question, and it has certainly been considered within the Treasury. There is a general view that if we cut duties, we can increase growth and therefore revenue, as the evidence suggested in 2015. However, sales of some drinks have increased after duty cuts, and sales of some drinks have increased after duty increases. It is very hard to evidence that the sales growth my...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Landfill Tax (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: Landfill Tax is chargeable on material deposited at a permitted landfill site in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The operator of a permitted landfill site is liable to pay the Landfill Tax directly to HMRC. Landfill Tax devolved to Scotland in April 2015.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Whisky: Excise Duties (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The taxation of spirits reflects its higher alcoholic strength relative to other drinks. While spirits pay more duty per unit of alcohol they pay less per typical serving of alcohol.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Beer: Excise Duties (31 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: Until exit negotiations are concluded, the UK remains a full member of the European Union and all the rights and obligations of EU membership remain in force. The UK duty regime complies with EU Directives on rates and structures of alcohol excise duty. The European Commission is currently undertaking a review of the Alcohol Structures Directive and we expect this to conclude in due course.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Beer: Excise Duties (31 Oct 2017)

All taxes are kept under review at fiscal events, and we will consider these...
