Prime Minister David Cameron has promised the coalition will be a "pub-friendly government".

Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions today, Cameron told Parliament: "I'm a big supporter of British pubs. I want us to be a pub-friendly government."

Cameron was responding to a question from Lib Dem MP Greg Mulholland.

He asked whether the Prime Minister would be "celebrating" pubs as a "vital cultural and social institution", as part of British Pubs Week.

Cameron confirmed he would be visiting a pub this week. But he added: "I can't tell you which one it is otherwise it will be discontinued, but I'm looking forward to it."

However, the Home Office is currently consulting on major changes to the licensing regime, which the trade argues are unnecessary and will create huge problems for pubs across the country.
