Fair pricing for tied pubs/bars

Fair pricing for tied pubs/bars

I would like for all tied bar/pubs to have the same pricing as a free of tie pub. for instance a keg of lager costs £147 to a tied pub, but a free of tie can buy the same product from the same supplier at a significant discount.

Why is this important?

A tied bar means that you have to buy all your products from the brewery that leases you the bar. This means that the brewery charges you rent to lease the building, you have to buy there products at an inflated price and in some cases they will also take a cut of your net profit.
