Alcopops tax hike

7th March 2008

Tax on super-strength beer, cider and alcopops will be raised by the Conservatives if they win the next general election.

The move aims to tackle binge drinking with the extra revenue raised being used to cut tax on lower strength beer and cider. Under the proposals, a £2 can of super-strength beer would rise in price to £2.38, while a £1.25 litre of strong cider would be £1.66. Alcopops costing around £1.25 a bottle would cost £1.79 in a move designed to tackle yobbish behaviour without penalising “sensible? drinkers.
