Campaign To Save The Great British Pub

EDM number 10 in 2009-10, proposed by Bob Russell on 18/11/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Service industries.

That this House is alarmed that five public houses are closing down every day, with beer sales in pubs at their lowest level for nearly 40 years; is deeply concerned as to the future of 7,500 public houses and more than 40,000 jobs; supports the campaign to mobilise public and political support to save the Great British Pub; believes that traditional public houses are being unfairly priced out of the market while supermarkets offer cheap deals without the level of restrictions and responsibilities required of licensees of public houses; further supports the beer industry and the Campaign for Real Ale's Axe the Beer Tax, Save the Pub campaign which states that tax rises will place traditional public houses at even greater risk of closing down; and calls on the Government to adopt the campaign's Last Orders, a five-point plan to save the British pub, as a way forward in safeguarding the future of Britain's traditional public houses.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs.
