The chairmen of two pub and beer groups for MPs, Liberal Democrat Greg Mulholland and Conservative Nigel Griffiths, visited the National Brewery Centre in Burton, to back its bid to set up as a trust company.

The centre, which houses the offices of the Society of Independent Brewers as well as a number of historical documents, must first prove it is a national organisation.
Mulholland, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, said: “The group and I will, of course, be assisting the centre in any way possible to ensure its success in its bid to gain national recognition and set up the National Brewing Heritage Trust.”
Griffiths, Burton MP and chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group, said: “Despite the political divide we are both hugely supportive of pubs and the brewing industry, and we both want to promote the centre and all that it has to offer as our national museum dedicated to brewing.”
