Business of the House ( 2 Feb 2012)

Kate Green: Will the Leader of the House arrange a debate on dignity at work in Parliament? Last night I was disturbed to learn that the guest beer in the Strangers Bar is called Top Totty, and that there is a picture of a nearly naked woman on the tap. As well as arranging a debate, will the Leader of the House join me in asking for that beer to be withdrawn from the bar immediately?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (18 Oct 2018)

Mike Wood: Thank you, Mr Speaker. We know that 82% of the beer that is drunk in our pubs is brewed in the UK. Jodie Kidd and other publicans will be presenting a 105,000-signature petition to Downing Street today to back the Long Live the Local campaign on beer duty. Will my right hon. Friend ensure that the Chancellor is fully aware of the contribution that our beer and pub sectors make to British...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Village Pub Diversification (23 May 2002)

Alun Michael: The "Pub is the Hub" good practice guide is issued by Business in the Community, the British Beer and Pub Association and the Countryside Agency. There are no central records held on requests for information on village pub diversification. The Countryside Agency has funded eight projects located in public houses in the past year through their Community Services Grant. These are broken down by...

Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: New Clause 14 — Expenditure of Greater London Authority on housing or regeneration (26 Jan 2015)

Andrew Griffiths: ...take a minute to tell hon. Members that we all need to see pubs protected and to see them thrive. What the Minister has done today is to say that if 21 people in a community want to protect their pub, they can do so and they can afford it protection under the planning laws. If a pub cannot get 21 people to support it, it is not financially viable. There is no need to have extra red tape...

Scottish Parliament: Rent-tied Pub Tenants (20 May 2015)

Neil Bibby: I join Sandra White in welcoming the debate and congratulate Paul Martin on securing this debate on an important issue. Pub company reform is crucial to the wellbeing of Scotland’s beer and pubs industry. The fact that two pubs close every week in Scotland is a stark reminder of the need for action. Like many members, in advance of the debate I was contacted by constituents and pub tenants...

Supply of Beer (Tied Estates) (14 Dec 1989)

John Redwood: ...House at great length. The two orders are an essential part of our balanced package for the brewing industry in response to the report by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission. The draft Supply of Beer (Tied Estates) Order includes the guest beer provisions, the reduction in the number of tied houses under the formula identified in the measure and the breaking of the tie on soft drinks,...

We are providing funding for business partners, such as Pub is the Hub and the Plunkett Foundation, to expand their work in helping communities to bring their pubs into community ownership and to diversify or innovate their provision of services. The...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Abolition of State Management) Bill (20 Apr 1971)

Mr John Golding: After the election in June the price of beer rose by at least 2½ per cent., according to Answers I received in the House. Naturally the brewers will back the Tory Party. Particularly disturbing to me and other Midlands hon. Members has been the change in the character of many public houses. Some hon. Gentlemen opposite sneer about pubs having linoleum on the floor. We are more concerned...

Pub Ownership (28 Apr 2009)

John Pugh: It is easy to become sentimental and emotional about the British pub—indeed, it is easy to become sentimental and emotional in the British pub—and get wrapped up in the images and clichés beloved of producers of soaps: the Rover's Return, the Queen Vic, "Heartbeat", the traditional village pub, and so on. Reality, though, is sometimes different. There are pubs and pubs: good pubs and...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2013)

Andrew Griffiths: I will do my level best to keep my comments as brief as possible. I speak as the Member of Parliament for Burton, the home of British brewing, and as the chairman of the all-party parliamentary beer group. It is therefore incumbent on me to put on record my thanks, and those of the brewing industry, for the Chancellor’s momentous decision yesterday to scrap the beer duty escalator and...

Orders of the Day — Licensed Premises in New Towns Bill: New Clause. — (Tied Houses Prohibited in New Towns.) (14 Oct 1952)

Mr Frederick Gough: I wonder whether the hon. and learned Gentleman has carried his "pub crawl"—If I might so call it—to the length of taking in the beers of those brewers and whether he has actually had those analysed as well. The hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) referred to the question of a tenant whose beer sales fall and who is then promptly sacked. Whether or not that is an exaggeration, it is...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (18 Mar 2008)

John Grogan: ...when I was in outer Mongolia, where I had been dispatched with the Foreign Office, well out of harm's way, along with my noble Friend Lord Malloch-Brown. Given that I am chairman of the all-party beer group, perhaps it was the best place for me, in view of the 4p rise in beer duty. In my brief remarks, I shall reflect on alcohol policy and the alcohol industry—an important industry in...

Small Breweries Relief ( 9 Nov 2020)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...words “cwrw” and “bragdy” when we have finished. The word “bragdy” is very similar to “brewery” because it is the same thing. “Cwrw” is an old Celtic word—Welsh word—meaning beer, but Members may recognise it from other places with words such as “cerveza”. There is a real pedigree to these words. I will not indulge myself any further, because given half a chance...

New Clause 4: The Tied Public House (16 May 1973)

Sir Peter Emery: The hon. Member for Bristol, South nods assent. The Labour Government should have thought about that when they were thinking of increasing the tax on beer. Whenever there has been a Labour Government the tax on beer has increased, whereas under a Conservative Government the tax has, on the whole, come down. The Labour Government obviously did not take into consideration the effect that an...

We have Carling Black Label, Marston's Pedigree and Punch Taverns, which is the biggest pub company in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2013)

Greg Mulholland: It has now been confirmed that the chief executive of the British Beer and Pub Association, the lobbyist for the large pub companies, made two false statements to the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee and said on television that the Government had figures for pub closures, which they do not. The opponents of much needed reform are conducting a campaign of misinformation. What...

Orders of the Day — Licensed Premises in New Towns Bill (15 Oct 1952)

Mr James Glanville: Is the hon. and learned Member seriously suggesting to the House that a man goes into a "pub", calls for a bottle of beer, and does not stipulate the size or quality, but takes whatever they give him and, if he is not satisfied, goes to the next "pub" and orders another one?

Scottish Parliament written answers — Licensing: Licensing (19 Aug 2005)

Bruce Crawford: To ask the Scottish Executive in what way the members of the National Licensing Forum (NLF) reflect "a fair sectoral spread" of the hotel, restaurant and pub sectors as referred to in the Executive’s letter of 22 June 2005 to the Scottish Beer and Pub Association.
