Alcoholic Drinks: Excise Duties

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received from (a) brewers and (b) owners of public houses on the effects of alcohol duty on their businesses; and if he will make a statement. (252957)

Treasury Ministers and officials receive representations from a wide range of organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government’s practice to provide details of all such representations.
