Camra News

Fantastic news! This week the Government announced tough action to reform the big pub companies in a bid to call time on the great british pub scandal.

Thank you for being a part of this campaign by signing our petition and showing Government that people care about local community pubs.

The Government has announced it will introduce a new Statutory Code and Pubs Adjudicator which will ensure that publicans are treated fairly and will crack down on sky-high rents and beer prices charged by the big pub companies.

Publicans could see the price they pay for beer fall by up to 60p a pint if the new Adjudicator forces big pubco to match open market prices. As a result we could see cheaper pub prices for customers, more investment and ultimately fewer pub closures.

For more on the campaign please visit the Campaign for Real Ale's website (CAMRA): 

The next step for the campaign is to fight for the Government to go even further with the reforms and allow tied publicans to buy beer on the open market. Also at present the reforms only apply to England and Wales but we will continue to push for reforms to be introduced across the UK.

Thank you for helping the campaign get this far!
