Scottish Parliament briefing 2011

04 Sep 2011

Scotch Whisky is a cornerstone of our economy impacting local jobs and economies, communities, health, transport, tourism, the environment, exports and business.

As Scotch Whisky production impacts virtually every constituency, we wanted MSPs, who are making decisions that affect these areas, to know the Scotch Whisky Association's (SWA) priorities for this new Parliamentary session. We look to the new Scottish Government and Parliament to support the Scotch Whisky industry as it invests for its future, and that of Scotland as a whole.

The new Scottish Parliament

Decisions at Holyrood directly impact Scotch Whisky businesses. MSPs' views on diverse policy areas such as alcohol pricing, the low carbon economy, the environment, tourism, export promotion, skills and transport infrastructure will all impact on the future of Scotch Whisky.
