Budget 2016 – new campaign short film calls for cut in beer duty – join the campaign!

The campaign for a cut in beer duty has launched a short, animated film, using key facts to makes a convincing case for a one penny cut in beer duty in the Budget.

The one-minute film, now available on YouTube, gives consumers and campaigners some of the most startling facts about beer tax rates in the UK and their huge impact on the economy. It compares UK duty rates with other countries, and highlights what a tax cut would do to boost jobs and growth in the coming year.

Finally, the film calls on viewers to write their MP about beer duty via the BBPA’s campaigning website.

Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, comments:

“I want to thank all those who have already joined the campaign calling for another cut in beer duty in the Budget – please use this new film to encourage others to do so.”
