Budget 2016 – campaign for duty cut steps up another gear, with 100,000 posters, postcards and beer mats going to pubs

The campaign for a fourth cut in beer duty stepped up yet another gear today, with over 100,000 posters, postcards and beer mats being distributed by the BBPA to pubs, urging the public to back the campaign.

The new BBPA posters, alongside postcards developed by CAMRA, highlight the huge difference in beer duty between Britain and other major European countries, and urge pubgoers to back the campaign by writing to their local MPs via the website www.beerandpubjobs.co.uk.

Campaigners can download a free poster from the BBPA’s website .

Using the email tool on www.beerandpubjobs.co.uk, in just a few seconds supporters can send a message to their local representative calling for a duty cut, and urging their local MP to back EDM 919. The BBPA says that strong consumer support has always had a big impact on the campaign.
