LONDON – Britain is seeking to remove a 5% tariff on exports of Scotch whisky to Australia in an upcoming trade deal, trade minister Liz Truss said on Thursday.

“A UK-Australia trade agreement would be significant for Scotch whisky and the Union,” she said in a statement.

“I am fighting hard to get these tariffs cut and secure a deal that benefits producers in Scotland and helps the whole of the UK.”
