Orders of the Day — Licensing etc. (Amendment) Bill (30 Nov 1979)

Mr James Pawsey: ...association said anything of the sort. All I am doing is quoting the forecasts made by members of the trade who, one would think, know a good deal about it.

Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: Alcoholic Drinks ( 1 Sep 2014)

Kris Hopkins: This Government has stopped departmental spending of taxpayers’ money on alcohol. We have closed and called time on the secret nationalised bar in our Department’s basement (coined by some wags as “the Prezza Arms”). Yet Ministers in this Department are not killjoys. As was the case under the last Administration, there is no prohibition on alcohol consumption (funded privately), and...

Business of the House: Whitsun Adjournment (21 May 2009)

Lynne Featherstone: Did he? Well, anyway, the British Beer and Pub Association said that 2,000 pubs closed last year. Tax is 33.5 per cent. of the price of a pint of beer and drinking is lawful. I simply call for a fair tax. I do not want to see that mainstay of British society, the pub, go out of existence.

[Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] — Backbench Business — The Future of Pubs ( 9 Dec 2010)

Greg Mulholland: I do not think that I have ever taken part in a debate in which the interventions were so accurate and helpful. My hon. Friend and ally is right that there is a scandal going on, with pub owners-whether individuals, pub companies or brewers-who have decided that they want to do something else with the pub deliberately running it down. Often an inappropriate person is picked to run it. That...

Beer Orders (10 Apr 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ...a debate on this subject and I congratulate the hon. Member for Teignbridge (Richard Younger-Ross) on securing it. I can sort out his puzzlement quite easily. I emphasise at the outset that the beer orders are no longer relevant to today's industry. We are simply getting rid of unnecessary legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Brewing Industry (23 Jun 1993)

Mr Neil Hamilton: ...Government have let them off lightly. As the hon. Gentleman would know if he bothered to examine the facts, in many respects there is more competition in the industry today than before the supply of beer report.

Parliamentary Commissions of Inquiry: Clause 11 — Rates of alcoholic liquor duty ( 7 Jul 2009)

Sarah McCarthy-Fry: ...that figure even though inflation is negative, so it is staying at 2 per cent. As with all tax policy decisions, the Government will monitor the impact of alcohol duty, including the impact on the pub industry. However, I am sure that hon. Members will acknowledge—indeed, they have done so—that the competitiveness and employment levels in any industry depend on a large range of...
