SWA welcomes Lord Smith’s report

27 Nov 2014

David Frost, Scotch Whisky Association chief executive, said:

"The SWA welcomes Lord Smith's report and we're currently analysing the detail. We are pleased that air passenger duty will be devolved and we will look closely at how inter-governmental working can be improved to benefit Scottish business and trade. We will also monitor efforts to achieve recognition under EU law for a 'made in Scotland' brand which is obviously relevant to Scotch Whisky as Scotland's largest food and drink export."
