That this House recognises the huge contribution the Scotch whisky industry makes to UK exports, totalling £4.3 billion in the last full year, and contrasts this with the long-term decline of the domestic market for Scotch whisky; and calls on the Chancellor to end the spirits duty escalator in this month's budget in line with the decision to end it for beer last year.
