New 'tied pubs' rule gets cheers from Pendle MP

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.”

Any details? I bet there are loopholes galore for pub companies to exploit.
