Comment on Election – BBPA

Emma McClarkin CEO of the BBPA said: 

“The British Beer and Pub Association warmly welcomes the formation of the new government.

“We have long worked with the Labour Party as they have developed their plans for supporting the British pub and brewing industry, and are encouraged by the enthusiasm Keir Starmer and his cabinet have shown in recognising its importance to communities up and down the country.

“It is imperative for any government to provide a sustainable and proportionate fiscal and regulatory framework that allows the sector to thrive. It must now cut beer duty and urgently reform business rates for the sector.

“We encourage all MPs to reward themselves with a well earned pint or two in their local this weekend, and to get to know their landlords and brewers.”
