Great news! The Chancellor has announced an unprecedented second consecutive cut in beer duty as well as freezing cider duty, during his Budget statement on the 19th March.
This is an incredible success and is testament to another year of fantastic campaigning by CAMRA members on this issue. We’d like to thank everyone who distributed our Beer Duty Campaign Success beer mats and posters, and the many thousands of CAMRA members who lobbied their MP this year – securing the support of 119 MPs for the campaign.
This new beer duty cut will give the beer and pub industry a solid platform from which to continue on the long road to recovery – and will help keep the lid on the price of a pint in your local.
This success stands us in good stead as we move towards campaigning for action to support beer and pubs as next year’s General Election draws nearer.
I hope you’ll join us in celebrating this success with a pint or two in your local pub this evening – cheers!
