General Election 2017 - Pledge for Pubs!
Ahead of the General Election on Thursday 8th June, CAMRA asked election candidates to pledge their support for beer and pubs by committing to:
1. Beer: Celebrate and promote Britain's 1,540 breweries
2. Pubs: Support action to help pubs thrive
3. Consumers: Represent the interests of pub goers, beer and cider drinkers
In total, 773 candidates signed up to our #pledgeforpubs and 130 of them were elected! You can download the list of elected MPs who supported CAMRA's pledges here.
We'd like to say a big thanks to all of the candidates who added their support, and all the CAMRA members who joined in the campaign.
We will now be working closely with elected MPs to make sure your voice is heard in Parliament. For more information on how you can get involved please email email@example.com.
