Why Sign the E-Petition?

Rising taxation on beer is a serious and growing threat to the future of pubs which is why CAMRA together with the ALMR, BBPA, SIBA and many others are backing a national e-petition calling for the abolition of the beer duty escalator. The escalator has seen beer duty increase by 42% since 2008 including a rise of 5% in last month’s budget.

Securing 100,000 signatures for this e-petition is a key aspect of our ongoing campaign to lobby the Government for the escalator to be abolished.

The e-petition needs 100,000 signatures in order to trigger a high profile Parliamentary debate which will put pressure on the Government to abandon the beer duty escalator in the 2013 Budget.
