205. Deputy Brendan Griffin asked the Minister for Finance the extra revenue that was generated by the €1 levy on wine in Budget 2013; if he would provide in tabular form the 2010, 2011, 2012 and most recent 2013 figures for wine sales and the related State revenue; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [37813/13]

 Minister for Finance (Deputy Michael Noonan): I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the additional alcohol products tax yield from the Budget 2013 increase on wine is estimated at €45m for the period January to August 2013.
 
The alcohol products tax yield from wine for the years 2010, 2011, 2012 and the first eight months of 2013 is as follows:
-
€m
2010
218.8
2011
231.0
2012
231.4
2013 (Jan to Aug)
174.8
The corresponding figures for VAT are not separately identifiable within the VAT receipts as the VAT returns do not require the yield from a particular sector or sub-sector of trade to be identified.
