Pubs are a vital part of local communities, providing
essential public space and supporting livelihoods. Pubs are
under a range of tax pressures (inc. Beer Duty, Business
Rates & VAT) and 1 in 3 pounds spent in pubs goes to the
taxman. In 2019 the government plans to increase Beer Duty.
High tax is one of the reasons 3 pubs a day close their
doors for good. By signing this petition you’re asking the
government to cut beer duty.
