General Election – are you voting for pubs on May 7th?


We are now just days away from the General Election and the campaigning is well under way.

It is crucial that candidates standing in our area recognise how important community pubs and real ale are to you as a potential voter.

Already, 772 candidates nationally have pledged their support at the time of writing.

A network of supportive MPs has been essential to our campaigning successes throughout this Parliament, from three successive beer duty cuts to pub company reform and planning protection for pubs.

Please now join us in urging your election candidates to commit to the following pledges if they are elected:

  • Support well-run community pubs
  • Promote Britain’s 1,300 breweries
  • Represent pub goers and beer drinkers
