CAMRA comment on the Conservative manifesto
Commenting on the release of the 2019 Conservative General Election Manifesto, CAMRA Chief Executive Tom Stainer said:
“It’s great to see that the Conservative manifesto has bold commitments to reviewing business rates and alcohol duty, as well as added business rate relief for pubs.
“Various taxes now make up a third of the cost of a pint served in a pub. The review of alcohol duty needs to look at measures to support consumption of alcohol in a community, supervised setting – which is why we have been calling for the next Government to introduce a lower rate of duty for beer served in pubs.
“CAMRA members will continue to engage with all candidates in this election and encourage them to sign up to our Pledge for Pubs”
