Help us stop a 5% increase in beer duty!
THIS CAMPAIGN IS NOW CLOSED. THE CHANCELLOR HAS INCREASED BEER DUTY BY ANOTHER 5%.
PLEASE JOIN OUR CALLS FOR THE ESCALATOR TO BE ABANDONED BY SIGNING THE BEER TAX E-PETITION AT www.camra.org.uk/saveyourpint
We need your help to persuade the Chancellor to freeze beer duty and end the unfair beer duty escalator in the Budget on 21st March.
Beer tax has increased by 35% since 2008, and the tax on a typical pub pint is now over £1 (see diagram). With 16 pubs closing every week it’s vital that we show the Government that enough is enough and it’s time for a fair deal for beer and pubs.
Please use this website to email your MP and ask them to add their support by either signing EDM 2785, “BEER DUTY ESCALATOR (No. 2)”, or writing to the Chancellor directly.
