SIBA welcomes new Government following landslide General Election

The Society of Independent Brewers and Associates (SIBA), has this morning welcomed the new Government following a decisive win for Keir Starmer’s Labour Party.

“The people of the UK have clearly spoken for the need for change. SIBA stands ready, and looks forward to working with the new Government in Westminster and across the U.K. in helping independent brewers be a part of their plans for sustainable economic growth.

Independent breweries are a hugely valued force for good in local communities and right now, more than ever, need support to compete against the  Global beer giants that control the market, as well a tax system which sets a level playing field for pub and brewing businesses to grow.” Andy Slee, SIBA Chief Executive
