Thank you for supporting the campaign
Thanks to the thousands of people who have emailed their MP, our Call Time on Duty campaign has been successful. This will be widely welcomed by consumers and businesses across the UK.
The Chancellor's decision to scrap the alcohol duty escalator a year early and freeze alcohol duty for spirits is fantastic news and will be widely welcomed by consumers and businesses. The move will help British pubs, bars and restaurants up and down the country, and will boost jobs and investment in the great British drinks industry and in the hospitality sector more widely.
While we would have liked to have seen a complete freeze on wine duty, the WSTA and our Call Time on Duty campaign partners applaud the Chancellor’s decision to scrap the escalator and will be raising a toast to George Osborne.
Thank you for your support!
