Pro-pub MP Greg Mulholland has praised the British Beer and Pub Association's (BBPA) guide on how pubs can get involved in British Tourism Week.
The week kicks off today and the BBPA's guide sets out ideas for events such and special menus as well as suggesting getting your local MP down for the day.
The praise from Mulholland, chair of the Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, is surprising given his previous criticism of the BBPA in regard to the issue of the beer tie.
In an Early Day Motion, Mulholland said he "commends the British Beer and Pub Association statement that tourism in Britain just would not work without the great British pub; and encourages hon. Members to support their local pubs' participation in British Tourism Week".
