Waive the duty on alcohol spirit to be used as an ingredient in hand sanitisers

Petition Details

UK distilleries are being asked to supply companies with spirit to make hand sanitisers which are so much needed.

HMRC get duty of £28.74 per litre of pure Alcohol spirit. This is making it so expensive to produce.

In this crisis, we do not feel the treasury should be benefiting in this way

Additional Information

Keep people and workers safe giving them access to hand sanitisers at a reasonable price.
