Jeremy Hunt extends alcohol duty freeze until August


Planned hikes in alcohol duty have been put off until August, afterJeremy Hunt decided to extend the current freeze a further six months.

The chancellor was due to increase duty on beer, wine, cider and spirits by the annual increase in RPI on 1 February.

This would have meant an average increase of 7p for a pint of beer, 38p for a bottle of wine and £1.30 for a bottle of spirits.
