BBPA calls for heightened gov support after ‘devastating’ winter

Nonetheless, the BBPA noted the return to office working and a move back to Plan A measures will help increase footfall in towns and cities and boost confidence

While publicans and brewers have “raised their glasses” following the end of Plan B restrictions this week, the BBPA is still calling for more government support as the “devastating” impact of Omicron over winter has become clear. 

The BBPA is urging the government to help combat the increasing financial pressures to “ensure our pubs remain open for consumers”, by providing long-term support through extending the current lower rate of VAT, lowering beer duty, and reforming the business rates system to reduce the “disproportionate” tax-burden on pubs.
