Thursday 1st November marks an important step in the campaign to scrap the beer duty escalator.
CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, is today delighted to celebrate with other members of the beer and pub industry as the Government e-petition calling on the abandonment of the beer duty escalator has exceeded the 100,000 signatures needed to trigger a Parliamentary debate.
Britain’s pubs face an impossible situation with a stagnant economy and a crippling level of duty being placed on every pint.
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) came into force in March and is already making a real difference when it comes to saving pubs from closure.
This week CAMRA's campaigns team have been taking to the queues at the Cambridge beer festival to spread the word about the beer tax e-petition.
The half way mark is approaching in our bid to gain 100,000 signatures on the e-petition.
If one of your local pubs is under threat, one option for saving it is for the community to get together and buy it.
John Healey MP has made the first submission for the 2013 Budget by writing to the Chancellor yesterday immediately after he announced that beer duty would increase by another 5%, urging him to back British beer.
CAMRA has responded to the 5% increase in beer duty in today’s Budget by launching a concerted effort to secure over 100,000 signatures on the Beer Tax E-Petition.
