CAMRA welcomes Chancellor's Autumn Statement which provides further help for pubs

"With 31 pub closing every week, the Chancellor's extension of small business rate relief and an additional £500 business rates reduction for most pubs in England is great news for pub goers. Business rates are a significant burden on pubs and so these announcements will help keep pubs open, boost investment and ensure consumers continue to benefit from great pubs."

"The review of Business Rates also provides an opportunity to address the disproportionate tax burden on pub beer sales compared to supermarket beer sales."

Tom Stainer, CAMRA Head of Communications
