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.
