Alcohol Taxation and the Pub Trade – Parliamentary Briefing
We occasionally alert to Parliamentary Library Briefing Papers of possible passing interest to our sector. This House of Commons Library Briefing Paper provides information on how alcohol is taxed from the introduction of the duty escalator in 2008 to the current position. It provides a chronological assessment of the changes to taxation and touches briefly on minimum pricing per unit and the regulation of the pub companies. The Briefing Paper can be found here: 'Alcohol taxation and the pub trade'.
