New 'tied pubs' rule gets cheers from Pendle MP
1:13pm Thursday 12th June 2014 in News
PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson has welcomed the announcement of new rules to ensure that tied pubs are given a fair deal by pub companies.
A new statutory code will give pub landlords running tied pubs new rights to help them get a fair deal from pub companies. Tied tenants usually have to pay a higher price for beer from the beer company they rent from.
Mr Stephenson said: “Living next door to a tied pub in Colne, I am delighted that action is being taken to support all the tied pubs across Pendle – giving pub landlords peace of mind they’ll be able to get a fair deal on their rent.
“Pubs are an important part of local life in Pendle, sitting at the very heart of our community and creating jobs for hardworking people.”
