Mulholland: putting the case for community pubs forward
Pro-pub MP Greg Mulholland is to meet Home Office minister James Brokenshire to discuss the proposed changes to the Licensing Act.

The Save the Pub Group and Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) are to meet Home Office minister James Brokenshire to discuss the proposed changes to the Licensing Act tomorrow.

Save the Pub Group chair Greg Mulholland is to meet Brokenshire along with Kate Nicholls, head of communications at the ALMR and secretary of the Independent Pubs Confederation.

The Lib Dem MP is keen to stress the impact the proposals may have on community pubs.

"I applaud the efforts of the Government in their attempts to tackle binge drinking and its association with anti social behaviour and the Save the Pub Group is keen to work alongside them to make sure this is done in a way that doesn't harm responsible businesses like community pubs," he said.

"It is important that local pubs have adequate representation during this consultation and that is what the Save the Pub Group and ALMR are hoping to provide.

"We must remember community pubs provide a resource to responsible drinkers who spend a quiet evening down the pub, create jobs and income and must not be adversely affected by incoming legislation."
