The Excise Duty Burden on Scotch Whisky

On Wednesday 09 March, Patricia spoke in a Westminster Hall debate on the Scotch Whisky industry, and called specifically for the UK Government to lower the excise duty on Whisky - which currently stands at 76% - at the forthcoming Budget announcement on 16 March.

Whisky is a key contributor to the Scottish economy, and lowering the excise duty will drive revenues up, help nurture condtions for growth, and stimulate inward investment.
