Election Reaction Comment | Chris Jowsey, CEO at Admiral Taverns

Chris Jowsey, Chief Executive at Admiral Taverns, said: “We look forward to working with the new government to ensure pubs get the recognition they deserve for all the hard work they put into communities across the UK. Not only are pubs an engine for economic growth, contributing £26.2 billion to the UK economy each year and supporting 936,000 jobs, they are the cornerstone of British life and have been bringing people together for centuries so it’s essential that we continue to facilitate such an important part of community life.

We urge the government to provide an overhaul of the business rates system, introduce beer duty reforms and a cut on employer national insurance to help facilitate the growth of long-term, sustainable pubs that sit at the heart of their communities and support all aspects of local life.”
