A chance to see whether the thaw between MP Greg Mulholland and Enterprise boss Ted Tuppen is enduring, will have to wait.

Mulholland had invited Tuppen to attend a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group on Tuesday, 7 June to debate the need for a statutory code of practice.

The pair had clashed at last year's Tenanted Pub Company Summit and Tuppen challenged Mulholland to invite him to a Save the Pub Group meeting.

But Tuppen is unable to make the meet due to a long-standing commitment to the Drinkaware board, of which he is a trustee, and a strategy meeting on the same date.

"We will do our best to ensure that someone from Enterprise can attend," he said.

The Save the Pub Group, chaired by Mulholland, has invited the British Beer & Pub Association, BII (British Institute of Innkeeping), Punch Taverns, Enterprise and the Federation of Licensed Victuallers Associations to attend alongside members of the Independent Pub Confederation including Fair Pint, the Federation of Small Businesses, Campaign for Real Ale and the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers.

"Now we have got to June and the Government's deadline for self reform, we are turning our focus to what needs to happen next and whether a statutory code of practice is necessary," said Mulholland.

The 7 June debate will kick off at 5.30pm.
