That's the full story from you then, is it? Salmon & whisky are listed together at #10, are they? Did you make this up? Maybe you meant Downing Street?


BTW, I was not aware that the news item derived from the SNP.

1.Whisky
2.Salmon
3.Beer
4.Chocolate
5.Cheese
6.Wine
7.Gin
8.Beef
9.Pork
10.Soft drinks

Source HM Customs and Excise


What list are you talking about that puts salmon and whisky at joint #10?

Will i get a reply from DJ? unsure.gif

Nice to see our "British Salmon" and no doubt British Whisky are the top two earners to keep the cash flowing into Westminsters coffers, this must be what all the "pooling and sharing" is all about.

No doubt we'll get our above average share of the rUK's debt to even things up. yes.gif

Are you aware that there are no export taxes?

Taxes are gained from profits from sales, selling more produce does not necessarily mean more profits and taxes, ask an accountant.

Salmon farms are not a great thing imho, not a fan of the fish myself but those farms have been hit by louse problems and are affecting wild salmon numbers and will in turn harm the tourism industry. Plenty of stories about it over the last few months

Jagz, I was putting your export figures in UK perspective. Man [even if he is Scottish] cannot
live on Salmon and Whisky alone.

That was a UK perspective (again, did you actually read the report DJ?) and where is the UK table that whisky and salmon are joint #10th.

Who said anything about living on salmon or whisky alone?

I don't need to ask an accountant anything John.

You're surely not going to deny that the Scotch whisky industry is a massive earner John, from the Scotch whisky association themselves in 2015 "exports generated £3.95 billion for the UK balance of trade".

http://www.scotch-whisky.org.uk/what-we-do/facts-figures/

Like you John i'm not a fan of salmon myself, however with the amount of salmon farms that are around the Isle of Skye the tourists are certainly not sharing your concerns.

I'm sure DJ will be along soon to rubbish the BBC report as probably being compiled by Gnats. laugh.gif

So what taxes are due then when you talk below of the cash flowing into Westminsters coffers.

It's a massive earner for the companies who own the business, alcohol is a massive tax generator of taxes for sales in the UK, not for those exported. It is good for jobs and the balance of trade as you say

Read what i wrote jagz, the infestation of lice in salmon farms are affecting wild salmon, the areas where there is line and pole fishing relies on Salmon to attract tourists, if the wild Salmon numbers drop then so will tourism to those areas. Posting a link that does not mention this does not really disprove anything i said. There were plenty of reports earlier this year with some even claiming its facing a crisis.

The tax from the huge Scottish food and drink industry (including whisky and salmon) i wasn't talking about exported goods, the link i posted was to highlight that our Scottish salmon is now being branded "British salmon".

So hold on , that link you posted with the headline Salmon sales surge as UK food exports hit record high was not about exports at all but was in fact about Salmon being named British. So why did you post that link and then say that they kept the cash flowing into Westminsters coffers. As you now admit that there is no export tax and that tax is payable on profits, not sales, why do you still insist that the Tax using those figures would be huge. There is no alcohol tax or vat gained on whisky exported, in an Independent Scotland the only tax payable to the Scottish exchequer would be on sales in Scotland , all those sales across the UK would still benefit Westminster and as we are part of the UK then taxes raised there do get pooled and shared with us.

The link also gave the top ten food and drink exports which I'm sure are also referred to as British
Below is the top ten exports which will also be referred to as British
Machinery including computers: US$60.3 billion (14.7% of total exports)
Vehicles : $51.7 billion (12.6%)
Pharmaceuticals: $32.6 billion (8%)
Gems, precious metals: $27.5 billion (6.7%)
Electrical machinery, equipment: $27.1 billion (6.6%)
Mineral fuels including oil: $26.2 billion (6.4%)
Aircraft, spacecraft: $20.7 billion (5.1%)
Optical, technical, medical apparatus: $17.2 billion (4.2%)
Plastics, plastic articles: $11.2 billion (2.7%)
Organic chemicals: $10.8 billion (2.6%)

Do you also have a problem with that or is it just products from here that you think should not be labeled British

Finally, took you long enough, and the UK treasury benefits handsomely from the Scottish food and drinks industry.

The list you produced don't have the prefix "British" worldwide, Scotch whisky and salmon do, trust you to encourage the dilution of anything Scottish.
