BBPA responds to announcement of Windsor Framework

Responding to the announcement of the new Windsor Framework, Emma McClarkin, Chief Executive of the British Beer and Pub Association said:

“It is good news that progress has been made on this deal.  We hope it will deliver a level of clarity and certainty for pub and brewing businesses in Northern Ireland, which has been needed for some time, although we recognise that some issues will inevitably remain.

“Allowing pubs and breweries across all devolved nations to benefit from reforms to beer duty is particularly welcome, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with both businesses and Government to help ensure a fair taxation deal for our industry everywhere.”
