Comment from CAMRA on the UKIP Manifesto

Comment from CAMRA on the UKIP Manifesto

Following the release of the UKIP Manifesto, please find below comment from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), which is urging election candidates to back a number of pledges to support British pubs and beer.

Colin Valentine, CAMRA's National Chairman says:

 "CAMRA has expressed surprise at the UKIP Manifesto which states that a UKIP Government would pass a new law to reduce the number of pubs and to restrict pub opening hours. This is a dramatic change in policy for a party that has previously described saving pubs as a UKIP priority. On the positive side the UKIP Manifesto includes a very welcome proposal to reduce the business rates bill for small businesses by 20%. This move would save a large number of pubs several thousand pounds a year which will help keep pubs as the beating heart of community life.

 "UKIP candidates at this Election who are keen to show their support for Britain's pubs and pub goers are urged to pledge their support for CAMRA's #pledgeforpubs."
