Motion text

That this House welcomes the formation of the All-Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group; shares the belief of the group that British pubs are an important part of this country's history and heritage and are hugely important to the communities they serve; believes that well-run community pubs are sociable, controlled environments in which to enjoy alcohol and so are part of the solution to problem drinking; further believes that too many pubs up and down the country are being closed, for a variety of reasons, and often when they do not need to and should not close; further believes there is an urgent need for the Government to take action in terms for support and legislative changes to address this; recommends that a range of measures are needed, from lower levels of beer duty, a more level playing field between on and off-trade pricing, reform of the current model of the tie to make it fairer and more transparent and addressing the market dominance of a few huge companies, the outlawing of restrictive covenants and changes to planning law that would offer much more protection to pubs; and further recommends that local authorities use all available powers to protect and support community pubs.
