Today marks an exciting achievement for CAMRA as we gain our 100,000th signature on the e-petition calling for an end to the beer duty escalator. Thank you to all those who signed the petition and took part in the campaign. The enthusiasm and hard work from so many has meant that we are only the 12th e-petition to reach the 100k milestone. This will help us secure a high-profile Parliamentary debate.
It’s vital we keep the pressure up with just six months to go until the next Budget. So please consider joining us on CAMRA’s Save Your Pint mass lobby on Wednesday 12th December – you don’t need to be a seasoned campaigner, we will support you all the way.
With 12 pubs still closing every week the lobby day comes at a critical time for the future of the pub.
I look forward to meeting you at Westminster alongside hundreds of your fellow CAMRA members from across the UK.
Colin Valentine, CAMRA’s National Chair
