Pubs must be free from Government regulation and red tape to operate responsibly and profitably.

That's the key message from the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers' (ALMR) 19th annual Business Day.

ALMR chairman Tim Sykes said: "The Association will continue to work with whichever party gets into government next week.

"We must ensure that the pub trade is allowed to get on with what it does best — looking after our customers in a controlled and safe environment

"We will always support responsible alcohol consumption but will resolutely campaign for the freedom for business to operate responsibly and profitably."

The ALMR also announced that Brian Whiting (Whiting & Hammond), Toby Smith (Town & City Pub Company), Kevin Sammons (Pub People Company) and Gay Mallen (GC Mallen) had been elected to the council.

Whiting said: "It's a privilege to be elected to ALMR's Council and I really look forward to being part of the effort we make together to champion our industry, and to doing what I can to help us all boost our business, our profits and our enjoyment in doing so."
