CAMRA calls for members to write to Vince Cable
The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has launched a initiative calling on its members to write to Secretary of State Vince Cable in support of pubco reform.

In a letter to members today CAMRA national chairman Colin Valentine said: “now it’s time to go direct to the key decision maker leading on the Government announcement and call on Vince Cable to do the right thing.”

Valentine added: “Don’t let the momentum drop at this crucial moment.”
CAMRA is calling on Government to deliver a statutory Code which includes the principle that a tied licensee is no worse off than a free of tie licensee. The organisation wants this backed up by an adjudicator.

CAMRA wants to see pubco licensees offered a “Market Rent Only Option” and a Guest Beer Option freeing them up to sell local beers at a competitive price.
