Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Beer Duty (28 Jan 2014)

Nicky Morgan: The Government reduced the tax on a typical pint of beer in the Budget 2013, and ended the beer duty escalator. A British Beer and Pub Association survey suggests that 76% of its members have increased investment, and 61% are employing more staff following the beer duty changes.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Public Houses (26 Mar 2015)

Jo Swinson: This Government is committed to supporting a fair and flourishing pubs sector. We have scrapped the beer duty escalator, and in Budget 2015 we cut beer duty for the third year in a row. Through the Community Right to Bid, we are giving community organisations in England a better chance to save their local pub by listing it as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). And, from 6 April, we will...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Public Houses: Closures (26 Oct 2015)

Anna Soubry: This Government is committed to supporting a fair and flourishing pubs sector. We have scrapped the beer duty escalator, and at Budget 2015 we cut beer duty for the third year in a row. Through the Community Right to Bid, we are giving communities in England a fairer chance to bid to buy and run their pub by listing it as an Asset of Community Value. We are introducing a statutory Pubs Code...

Beer Duty Escalator ( 2 Jul 2012)

Chloe Smith: On that note, let me come on to some of the factors affecting the state of the industry. It is important to be clear that duty is not the only thing affecting the state of the pub industry. We have all, I am sure, been in good pubs and terrible pubs, and the price of the beer is not the only factor involved. On the price of a beer, I point out that the pre-announced alcohol duty increases in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2016)

Andrew Griffiths: The Secretary of State will know that the beer and pub industry in the west midlands employs 86,000 people in 5,000 pubs, has 124 breweries and contributes £1.3 billion in tax. Given his support for the brewing industry when he was in the Treasury, when he led the call for the duty cut, will he outline what his Department is doing to support the beer and pub industry—and will he pick up...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Pub Companies (21 Jan 2014)

Andrew Griffiths: ...of the Care Bill Committee, so I am grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to speak—which I do as the Member of Parliament for Burton, which is the home of brewing and of two important pub companies. Given that I am the last Back-Bench speaker in the debate, it is unfortunate that it should fall to me to represent the voice of doom, but I must urge the House to think about the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (24 Jun 2014)

Greg Mulholland: It is very welcome that the Government are introducing a statutory code of conduct for pub companies, but it lacks the all-important market rent only option. There is concern about the direct lobbying of the Treasury by the British Beer and Pub Association and the pub companies. When will the Treasury accept the freedom of information request from the all-party save the pub group?

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Mike Wood: As chair of the all-party parliamentary group on beer and brewing, I welcome the measures that the Chancellor announced to support sectors that have been particularly hard hit throughout the pandemic and by many of the measures that were necessary to fight coronavirus. In the previous financial year, around £17 billion in lost trade was wiped off the value of the pub and beer sector. Trade...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Licensing Advisory Group (23 Nov 2005)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...representatives of the following organisations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Beer Orders ( 6 Dec 1995)

Simon Hughes: I welcome the Minister to his new job. The Chancellor's decision last week not to increase the duty on beer is clearly welcome, but there is still considerable concern in the brewing industry and particularly in the licensed trade that current arrangements for the licensed trade work against the survival of the local pub. I am not making a party political point, but this year could the...

Scottish Parliament: Tied Pubs (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

Patrick Harvie: ...passed—and it will certainly pass with the support of the Green group of MSPs. I declare, from my entry in the register of members’ interests, not only my membership of the cross-party group on beer and pubs, which has no collective view on the bill, but my membership of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale. Neil Bibby is one of a relatively select few MSPs I have had the pleasure of...

Bill Presented: Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2008)

John Grogan: the widening differential between prices in pubs and in the off trade. When I was a young man, the difference was about three times—that is, it was three times more expensive to buy a pint in a pub as it was to buy the equivalent amount of beer in a supermarket. Now, the margin is eight times, and widening. The Scottish Government are suggesting that a minimum price be introduced next...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Beer Duty (28 Feb 2017)

Graham Evans: My hon. Friend will be aware of the great contribution that the great British pub and great British beer make to local economies, employing nearly 1 million people and contributing £10 billion in tax. The Government have a proud record: in the last three years, we have scrapped the hated beer duty escalator and cut beer duty for three consecutive years. Will she seriously consider continuing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Public Houses (Closures) ( 9 Nov 2009)

Gerry Sutcliffe: We understand that in June this year, CGA Strategy, the pub and drinks market analyst that tracks the pub closure rate on behalf of the British Beer and Pub Association, estimated that 2,377 pubs had closed over the previous 12 months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Beer Duty (11 Mar 2014)

Greg Mulholland: I warmly welcome the Treasury decision to scrap the beer duty escalator, give a cut in beer duty and support a freeze this year, but although that has been hugely helpful to brewing, it has not helped many pubco pubs, which face a pubco price escalator. The price of an 11 gallon keg of Fosters for a pubco pub has gone up four and a half times more than it has for a free-of-tie pub, with the...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: New Clause 13 - Conversion of Existing Permits (11 Jan 2005)

Malcolm Moss: I remember the debate on clause 263 and I am grateful to the Minister for taking that matter away and looking to table amendments—perhaps on Report—that will satisfy the concerns of the beer and pub industry. I am also grateful for his assurance that schedule 15 includes the requirements to achieve what the British Beer and Pub Association sought to achieve; a guarantee that on the...

Scottish Parliament: Tied Pubs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Nov 2020)

Bob Doris: ...survey of tenants of tied pubs that the Scottish Parliament information centre arranged. It found that “The majority of ... respondents felt that the Bill would improve the relationship between pub-owning businesses and tenants.” I can understand that; given the contractual relationship between tenants and pub-owning businesses, tenants are most likely to give a clear and frank...

Queen's Speech — Debate (6th Day) (11 Dec 2008)

Lord Jones of Cheltenham: order to produce not just academically qualified young people but healthy bodies and healthy minds too; and, secondly, I want to say a few words in support of the state of the good old British pub. In the gracious Speech, there was mention of the children, schools and learning Bill. When I served in another place, I often visited local schools, colleges and businesses in my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: British Food ( 4 Feb 2016)

Elizabeth Truss: I know that beer is my hon. Friend’s passion, and I congratulate him on his role as chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on beer. Also, his constituency is home to some of the finest water in our country that produces some of the finest beer. In fact, Lord Bilimoria, one of the founders of Cobra, is one of our food pioneers helping to promote great British beer not just in Europe,...
