Commenting on the Queen’s Speech, CAMRA Chairman Nik Antona said:
“We welcome that the Government has followed up its manifesto commitment and will look to reform business rates, as well as bringing in an additional discount for pubs.
“Pubs contribute positively to the UK, socially, culturally and economically. We look forward to working with Government and Parliament to ensure the reforms mean pubs are treated fairly.
“CAMRA will continue to push for a lower rate of tax on beer served in pubs and will be bringing forward proposals in the new year.
“Finally, we urge the government to complete its statutory review of the Pubs Code and ensure that it is fit for purpose.”
