Calling time on beer duty

The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) has launched a new video, which it says “highlights the importance of a beer tax freeze in the March Budget”.

The ten-minute film sees presenter and beer expert Marverine Cole visit pubs and breweries around the country, talking to those who make the industry work.

BBPA chief executive, Brigid Simmonds, said: “Huge thanks are due to everyone who participated in the making of the film. Whether it is lobbying their local MPs or encouraging others to do so, I hope everyone, from beer drinkers, to pubgoers, publicans and the entire beer and pub supply chain will use this new film to help make the case for a fairer deal for our sector.

“The 42% tax rises we have endured since 2008 are unsustainable. It is vital we get the message across that a change of Government policy could really boost investment and jobs across both beer and pubs – without putting a serious dent in Government revenues.”
