Seeks views on government proposals to establish a Statutory Code and an independent Adjudicator for the pubs sector.
The government is keen to support a thriving and diverse pubs sector. There have been longstanding and serious concerns raised about the relationship between large pub companies and their tenants. The government is consulting on proposals to establish a Statutory Code and an independent Adjudicator for the pubs sector to govern the relationship between large pub companies and their tenants.
In addition to the full consultation response form, we have provided a short online questionnaire, available from the respond online link, for individual tenants and consumers to express their views. We are happy to receive responses either to the full consultation or to the online questionnaire to understand the likely impact and effects of these proposals.
In the video below, Jo Swinson, Minister for Employment Relations and Consumer Affairs, and Mike Benner, Chief Executive of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), discuss the government’s proposals.
