Lib Dem MP Greg Mulholland has been crowned the Campaign for Real Ale's (CAMRA) Parliamentary Campaigner of the Year.

CAMRA praised Mulholland, chair of the Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, for his work on behalf of community pubs, real ale and pub customers.

"Greg is a superb champion and ambassador for beer and pubs and this award recognises his huge efforts over the past year," said CAMRA chief executive Mike Benner.

"Greg has seen first hand the weakness of planning laws to protect pubs in his fight to save the Summercross pub in Otley from developers and is championing calls to stop people being able to demolishing pubs or turn them into other types of business without planning permission.

"In Parliament, Greg has been instrumental in moving the issue of pubs up the political agenda, notably through forming the new All Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, campaigning for reform of the beer tie and arguing for a fair deal on beer tax."

Mulholland said he was "really proud" to have received the award. "I am committed to leading the fight for the Great British pub in parliament and to campaign for community pubs and real ale and I have been pushing problems facing pubs up the political agenda."
