Budget 2016 - CAMRA report adds weight to call for beer tax cut

BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds has commented on yesterday’s report from the Centre for Economic Research for CAMRA:

“This important report adds even more weight to the convincing case for a cut in beer duty in the Budget.

“The fact that 550 pubs are at risk if the tax on beer is raised as planned, should be real pause for thought in the Treasury. Instead, a 1p duty cut would boost confidence and investment, adding to the momentum that three beer duty cuts have already given to the brewing and pub sector.
