James Karat started this petition to UK Parliament

At present due to the Coronavirus there is a lack of hand sanitizer available to the NHS and Care homes. A number of spirit producers have been asked by the NHS to switch production and produce the sanitizer however there is an alcohol duty on the product.

To produce 100L of sanitiser it is going to cost c.a £2500 in Alcohol Duty leaving producers massively out of pocket (please see the links below).

I must stress that these companies are offering the product to the NHS and Care Homes for free however it seems wrong that a tax on this endeavour is in place.

This petition is to ask the government to suspend the alcohol duty immediatelyon these firms whilst they produce this product.
