Our Local Pubs

Today I met people from the Victoria Inn and the Kings Arms in Salcombe, as well as the publican from the Ferry Boat Inn in Dittisham. Those are among the finest pubs in Britain, and we discussed the problems they are facing; I was told that they could employ more young people if they had lower overhead costs, which includes the beer duty escalator.

I spoke in Westminster on the issue of the Beer Duty Escalator on the 1st November. Click here to watch Parliament live
