WSTA's Drop the Duty Campaign

WSTA's Drop the Duty campaign

British Glass are supporting The Wine and Spirit Trade Association’s (WSTA) ‘Drop the Duty!’ campaign to try and ensure George Osborne gives the industry the 2% cut in duty that they are asking for in the upcoming 2015 Budget.

The WSTA campaign is aiming to generate 10,000 emails to MPs over the coming weeks. We have emailed our local MP through the http://email.droptheduty.co.uk website but they still need more support from the industry, the supply chain and its employees.

In the pre-election clamour for tax cuts, the WSTA wants to ensure their voice is heard in amongst the competing myriad of other requests.

If you have not already done so and feel that you would also like to support this campaign, there are a couple of simple actions that could help:

1) Emailing your local MP via http://email.droptheduty.co.uk
2) Employees could attach an interactive email footer below their email signatures – this can be viewed, copied and pasted from here http://www.droptheduty.co.uk/resources/

If you receive any replies from your local MPs, please could you forward them to Rob Ivory, the WSTA’s Campaign Manager (droptheduty@wsta.co.uk), who will be able to suggest a follow-up draft letter. This is important because an exchange with an MP generates a proper conversation beyond the initial stock, standard Treasury/party policy response.

Thank you in advance for your support.
