Reduce Alcohol Duty for On-Sales and Increase Duty for Off Sales

Comment 20th July 2010

To reduce duty for 'On Sales', (pint of, glass of etc) by 50% and add duty to off sales (cans off, grates of, packs of etc.) by 70%

Why does this matter?

Many alcohol related problems in and around housing is caused by under-age drinking in parks etc where the offenders have bought alcolhol to be consumed away from the licensed premesis.  It is therfore un-supervised and regulated drinking.  Whereas responsible licensees of pubs and clubs can refuse to serve an individual if they have had too much to drink.  The change in duty would help save our local pubs and clubs by encouraging on site drinking, whilst still ensuring a reliable revenue stream for the government.
