Political campaigning

Pubs are facing extinction. See what needs to change, how we’re taking the CAMRA cause to government, and find the latest ways to make your voice heard.

Beer tax

We pay one of the highest rates of beer tax in Europe. See how CAMRA is working to change that.

Business Rates

This unfair tax system sees pubs overpay by millions every year.

PubCo reform

Your local could be owned by a company you’ve never even heard of, and it’s pushing up prices.

General Election 2024

CAMRA is calling on candidates for the General Election 2024 to support pubs, pints and people. We’ve created a simple manifesto, outlining key asks for MP candidates and the next UK Government including:

  • Fair tax for beer and pubs. 
  • More rights for beer drinkers and pub goers. 
  • Access to market for small and independent breweries and cider producers. 
  • Better planning protections for pubs.  
  • Changing the business rates system to make it fairer for pubs.
