Petition Drop the October Beer Tax
We the undersigned believe that the higher rate of tax levied on beers brewed at 7.5% or above will have an adverse effect not only on small innovative British Breweries, but also on the independent retailers and local pubs who stock their produce.
The way to tackle binge drinking amongst the young is with education not taxation.
