Fair Deal For Your Local: Time for Pubco ReformWe have a very real opportunity to save the Great British Pub and we need you to get involved.
The Government backed beer and pubs in the recent Budget by abandoning plans for a beer duty hike and instead cutting beer duty for the first time in over 50 years. They are now building on their support for pubs by taking on the large pub companies who are exploiting pub licensees and putting the future of thousands of pubs at risk.

Budget BeerAmazing but true. The Chancellor has scrapped the Beer Duty Escalator and replaced the expected 3p a pint increase with a 1p a pint decrease from Sunday. This only applies to beer (not cider, wine or spirits) so it's time to get down to your local for a few (before you don't have a local any more!!)
