The Times of London: Cider producers pressing their case for tax exemption

Beer and cider producers and drinkers will be taking a keen interest in talks in Steasbourg today between the Campaign for Real Ale and Pierre Moscovici, the EU commissioner responsible for excise duty. The campaigners, accompanies by the MEPs Anneliese Dodds and Clare Moody, want the UK to retain a duty exemption for small cider producers making less than 70 hectolitres a year and introduce a sliding scale of duty similar to small breweries' relief to support medium-sized producers.

Fazit: Die EU mlge aktive Wirtschaftsförderung betreiben.
