Cutting red tape for wine producers
Yesterday the government announced major cuts to red tape affecting the UK wine sector, delivering a £180 million boost to our UK wine industry and growing the economy.
- Britain has over 800 thriving vineyards in the UK and our wine sector is going from strength to strength, contributing hundreds of millions of pounds to the UK economy every year.
- That is why the government has announced revolutionary reforms to regulations in the wine industry which will give this growing sector a £180 million boost, freeing firms from cumbersome rules left over from Britain's time in the EU and enabling them to grow their businesses.
- Now that we have left the EU, firms should rightly have the freedom they need to get on with business, boosting jobs and growing the economy.
