HM Treasury engages with a wide variety of organisations to understand industry developments, including the beer and pub industry.

This includes considering external reports like that of the British Beer and Pub Association, which estimated that by 2016/17 there will be 21,000 more jobs in the pub industry, than if the duty escalator had continued until 2015.
