An Early Day Motion signed this month by their only MP:
“That this House welcomes the ending of the beer duty escalator and the positive impact of two successive beer duty cuts in the 2013 and 2014 Budgets … notes that beer duty is now 13 per cent lower than under the tax rises previously planned … and urges the Government to consider a further cut in beer duty in the 2015 Budget
