Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (21 Jul 2015)

George Osborne: I shall take that as an early representation for next year’s Budget. We have been able to help by reducing beer duty and ending the beer duty escalator that was putting pubs out of business. Other measures, such as those on apprenticeships and the employment allowance, are also helping the pub industry which is such a big employer of young people in our country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions ( 1 Dec 2015)

George Osborne: Of course, the pub industry has been supported by the reduction in beer duty, the increase in employment allowance, which is of huge benefit to many pubs, and the extension of small business rates relief, which we announced last week. I am happy to see what more we can do to support the great British pub industry, and I look forward to hearing the hon. Gentleman’s ideas. Several hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Community Pubs (30 Jun 2014)

Brandon Lewis: We are providing £200,000 to Pub is The Hub and the Plunkett Foundation to help communities and community pubs to diversify and take over their local pubs. We have also doubled small business rate relief until 2015 and cut national insurance. In addition, the Chancellor scrapped the previous Government’s beer and alcohol duty escalator and reduced beer duty in two successive Budgets, for...

Developing Country Debt (Restriction of Recovery): Finance Bill ( 6 May 2009)

Tobias Ellwood: ...makes an important point. We have heard nothing from the Government that will help our traditional pubs, even though the consequences of their closure are much greater than one might imagine. When a pub closes, people either go to our town centres—where the vibrancy of what goes on already poses a challenge in many places—or they purchase their alcohol in supermarkets. When the...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Rural Public Houses (15 Apr 2002)

Alun Michael: The concept of the pub being "the hub" of the rural community is being promoted by Business in the Community as part of its Rural Action programme launched in July 2001. Rural pubs have great potential to assume a business and community role in the future as one-stop shops for essential rural services while at the same time helping them to increase their own long term viability. In December...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 1991)

Eric Illsley: Is the Prime Minister aware that the unemployment statistics released this morning include a number of pub licensees who have been forced out of their public houses, and possibly on to the dole, because they cannot afford the massive rent increases imposed on them by the brewing industry? Will the Prime Minister re-examine the Government's policy towards the brewing industry and the sale of...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (11 Feb 2000)

Mike O'Brien: ...Act 1964. I agree that it is difficult to understand the rationality of some of the provisions in that Act. Persons under 18 cannot buy a drink anywhere on licensed premises, whether in the bar of a public house or elsewhere. The only exception is people 16 or over who can buy beer, cider or porter for consumption with a meal not served in a bar. Persons under 18 cannot drink in a bar, but...

Written Answers — Treasury: Beer and Cider: Excise Duties (23 Feb 2023)

Caroline Lucas: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will make it his policy to (a) reduce duty charged on draught beer and cider served in pubs and taprooms by 20 per cent from August 2023, (b) introduce a lower business rates multiplier for hospitality businesses in recognition of their community value and (c) increase support with energy bills for beer and pub businesses from April 2023; and if...

Orders of the Day — Health Bill (29 Nov 2005)

Howard Stoate: define food and to determine whether a particular type of food constitutes cooked food. I met one of my constituency's publicans at a public meeting last night who made the interesting point that beer, by definition, is a food. Does that not rather confuse the situation under the Bill because any pub that sells beer will technically be selling food?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Community Pubs ( 7 Apr 2014)

Brandon Lewis: We are providing £200,000 of funding to help communities diversify and own their pubs through Pub is the Hub and the Plunkett Foundation, both of which do fantastic work. The Right to Bid also provides protection for pubs as community assets. We have doubled the small business rate relief until 2015, scrapped the previous Government’s beer and alcohol duty escalators and cider duty...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 36 - The Pubs Code (30 Oct 2014)

Oliver Colvile: I want to make my point before I forget it. The landlord told me that, because he is tied, he has to buy from Enterprise Inns, which charges him significantly more for his barrel of beer than he feels is necessary. Ultimately, all this will have a price for the consumer. If I go into a pub to buy a pint of beer, I do not want to have to pay over the odds.

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Public Houses (15 Jan 2015)

Kris Hopkins: Since taking on the role of Minister for Community Pubs in July 2014, I have visited a number of community pubs in an official capacity, including the Star Inn pub in Salford, the Golden Ball pub in York and the Fox and Goose pub in Hebden Bridge. I look forward to visiting further pubs run by and for the local community in coming months. Local pubs are part of the social and cultural...

Written Answers — Treasury: Beer: Coronavirus (18 Jan 2022)

Helen Whately: ...monitor the economic impact of covid-19 on the brewing sector and is taking steps to support pubs and brewers in their recovery. As announced at Autumn Budget, the duty rates on alcohol including beer will be frozen for another year. This is expected to save beer drinkers £900 million over the next five years, and has resulted in beer duty rates being at their lowest level in real terms...

Business of the House (13 Dec 2012)

Greg Mulholland: In January this year, the House voted unanimously for a review of the Government’s much-criticised decision to retain self-regulation for the big pub companies. Last week we learned from the British Beer and Pub Association that self-regulation has no role in tenant profitability, which was the big problem identified by the Select Committee. Now that we know that self-regulation cannot...

Mcgurk's Bar Bombing (14 Jul 2008)

Michael Connarty: That was the point—McGurk's bar was not a pub that was involved in the troubles. The bombing happened in '71. The troubles were bubbling up and there had been a few bombings in the Province, but the attack saw the largest loss of life in one bombing at that time. As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators—Robert Campbell and his friends, the UVF hit men—were cowards. They did not try to...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Coin-in, Coin-out Machines (30 Apr 2002)

Richard Caborn: ...Catering Trades Association (BACTA) suggests that the total gross yield to legitimate operators of gaming machines is within the range of £1.3 billion to £1.5 billion per year; while the British Beer and Pub Association have estimated that the annual contribution to the pub economy from gaming machines is in the region of £0.5 billion to £0.6 billion.

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill: Clause 1. — (Discrimination in Places of Public Resort.) (16 Jul 1965)

Mr Peter Griffiths: If I can be assured that that sort of bar will not be included, that will remove one of my doubts about the Bill. The system to which I am referring is understood by English people, and when one enters a pub and sees that there is a "regulars only" bar, one goes to the other bar. This will not be so well understood by coloured persons, and if they are led by people whose motives are probably...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 4 Mar 2015)

David Cameron: I praise my hon. Friend for the work he has done to support the beer industry, to support Britain’s pubs and to stand up for our local communities where the pub is so often the hub of the village and the community. This Government have been a good friend of Britain’s pubs and the beer industry. I am delighted with the figures my hon. Friend read out. It always goes to show that life’s...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: ...decides-on alcohol duty, so it is really not much of a leap to say that the House should take a strong view on minimum pricing. Does he agree that minimum pricing cannot possibly affect the pub or restaurant trade? No pubs in the country will sell alcohol for 50p per unit other than at those very strange times of binge drinking. He would be very lucky to find in his constituency a pub that...

Petitions: Tax (Alcohol) (20 Apr 2009)

Linda Gilroy: ...customers of pubs such as the Clipper, the Maritime, the Fresher, the Varsity and the Swallow, and others including Wyndham square in my constituency, backs a great British tradition: the British pub and specifically the drinking of beer, both of which are under pressure from a variety of sources, including the decision in last year's Budget that, in order to ensure that prices keep pace...
