Written Answers — Treasury: Beer: Excise Duties (18 Jun 2014)

Nicky Morgan: Budget 2014 cut the tax on a typical pint of beer by one penny. This will support pubs as the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) estimate nearly two thirds of the alcohol sold in pubs is beer.

Written Answers — Treasury: Excise Duties: Beer ( 8 Nov 2012)

Sajid Javid: The information is not available from HMRC given that data on revenue from beer duty is not broken down to the level required to identify the amount of beer duty raised from (a) on-trade sales and (b) off-trade sales.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (27 Oct 2011)

Greg Mulholland: Since December 2008, 3,218 tied pubs have closed and 425 free houses have opened, yet the British Beer and Pub Association, which speaks for pub companies, continues to mislead Ministers and MPs by stating that the opposite is actually the case. Do Ministers agree that this discredits the BBPA and also shows that the Government must stick to their commitment to act on the issue?

Food and Drink: Waste Prevention - Question (17 Jun 2020)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: I too am very concerned. There are 47,000 pubs across the UK and between them they have around 140 million litres of spoiled beer that needs to be cleared from pub cellars to make way for fresh stock.

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill — [1st Allocated Day] (18 Nov 2014)

Greg Mulholland: Let me finish my point and I will give way. The Select Committee said: “The BBPA (British Beer and Pub Association) has shown itself to be impotent in enforcing its own timetable for reform and the supposed threat of removing the membership of pub companies who did not deliver was hollow.” Just last year the chief executive of the British Beer and Pub Association misled the Select...

Written Answers — Treasury: Excise Duties: Beer (16 Mar 2011)

Justine Greening: The brewing and pub industry represent important local businesses but are a comparatively small part of the total economy.

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (2nd Day) (28 Feb 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: ...the point about pubs increasingly offering food. That is happening—it is part of their offering, along with the drink. But the noble Lord’s argument seems to imply that he is not for the British pub industry and British pubs. The BBPA, which represents 20,000 pubs in this country—the majority—and CAMRA, which represents a huge part of our beer industry, feel that these amendments...
