Please find the below comment from CAMRA on the introduction of the Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) Bill:

Tom Stainer, CAMRA’s Chief Executive, said:

“While it’s great that the Government have seen the need to take some action, unfortunately for pubs, this is a drop in the ocean compared to the bigger task at hand – completely reforming business rates which are currently a punitive tax on successful licensees who grow their business.

“This summer, we are trying to make a real difference to publican’s bottom lines by launching CAMRA’s Summer of Pub – a feel good campaign designed to get as many people as possible down their locals celebrating all the great things that pubs do in their communities. It would be fantastic to see Local Government Minister Rishi Sunak MP doing the same.”
