Answer given by Mr Moscovici on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-003926/2018

As a general practice the Commission does not comment on draft legislation.

In relation to reduced rates applicable to ethyl alcohol, Article 22, paragraph 7, of Council Directive 92/83/EEC provides that: ‘… Slovakia may apply a reduced rate of excise duty, of not less than 50% of the standard national rate of excise duty on ethyl alcohol, to ethyl alcohol produced by fruit growers' distilleries producing, on an annual basis, more than 10 hectolitres of ethyl alcohol from fruit supplied to them by fruit growers' households. The application of the reduced rate shall be limited to 50 litres of fruit spirits per producing fruit growers' household per year, destined exclusively for their personal consumption.’
