Saving the British Pub

Saving the British Pub

Every day we hear of the steady demise of that pillar of British community, the pub.

May I petition for the removal of the duty on draught beer, and measures to prevent supermarkets from selling beer into containers 'off-license'.

I have no connection with the pub trade save as a customer.

Why is this important?

The British Pub is being extinguished by the fact it so much cheaper to buy beer in supermarkets and drink it at home. If my idea was adopted I do not believe the Government would lose much income because of the companion sales of wines and spirits to the companions of draught beer drinkers.

The pub is much more than a drinking den, it is where people meet and interact, play games and socialise.
