Jonathan Djanogly: Penny off a pint for pubs in Huntingdonshire


20th March 2014

Jonathan Djanogly has welcomed announcements in the budget to support pubs in Huntingdonshire.

The budget announced:

  • Tax on beer to be cut by a penny a pint, helping local pubs.
  • Duties on Scotch whisky and other spirits will be frozen, supporting the Scottish whisky industry.
  • Duty on ordinary ciders to be frozen, helping West Country cider makers hit by the recent weather.
  • The duty escalator for wine has been abolished.

Jonathan Djanogly commented:
“This budget is great news for the 4,360 pubs and the 57,700 people who work in them across the East of England.

“This is the second year that a penny has been taken off a pint, with duties on Scottish whisky and most ciders frozen too.

“Pubs are an important part of local life in Huntingdonshire. This is welcome support for them, protecting jobs, and serving up some extra help for hardworking people.”
