Sunak reforms alcohol duties
Rishi Sunak says that the UK will carry out the "most radical simplification of alcohol duty" for over 100 years.

He says there will be just six duty rates on alcohol. The stronger the drink, the higher the rate, he states.

He says this will mean that some stronger spirits and wines will become more expensive, but weaker alcohols like beer and rosé will become cheaper.

There will also be a new "small producer relief" which will include small cider makers for the first time, in a similar way to small brewers' relief.

He says he will end the "irrational duty premium" of sparkling wines costing more than still wines of equivalent strength.

Duty is also being cut on fruit ciders to bring it in line with apple ciders, he states.

The only thing new, is the history U haven't been told!
