Beer Taxation and Pubs (28 Mar 2019)

Mike Wood: I share the sadness whenever a well-used pub closes for any reason, and there is a particular impact on the community when that pub is a heritage building in a town, city or village.

Backbench Business: Beer Duty Rates — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (25 Jun 2019)
