Bristol students raise glasses to cut wine and spirits tax campaign

March 14, 2014 1:46 PM

Bristol University students packed local favourite pub The White Bear to add their support to our campaign to Call Time on Duty. Brandishing our wine mats bearing the facts about how much tax we pay on our drinks, they demanded that the Chancellor George Osborne cut the duty on wine and spirits in next week’s Budget.

‘As a student, I make a habit of shopping for the best food deals, and skimping on heating to get lower bills,’ says Bristol student Victoria Newark. ‘The high duty that government imposes on wine makes a mockery of students’ hard attempts to keep living costs down.’

‘I would like to see a reduction in wine duty,’ says Newark, ‘as I face enough expenditure and debt without this sneaky government tax on a fun night out.’
