PM and Chancellor ‘failed in their duty’ to address issues facing Hospitality and brewing industries

“Today, at PMQs the Prime Minister had the opportunity to address the devastating and unjustified restrictions being forced upon hospitality during what should be the best month of the year, but he did nothing. The Chancellor at his spending review had the opportunity to right a past wrong – that breweries have suffered the hardest during this crisis and received little or no direct support. Both failed in their duty to take these opportunities.

SIBA will continue to work with other trade and consumer bodies to press the Government to see past the narrow view they are taking on coronavirus and address the wider damage they are doing to jobs, businesses and the irreplaceable culture of the UK’s pubs and breweries.”

James Calder, Chief Executive Society of Independent Brewers
