The business landscape facing publicans has prompted BII CEO Steve Alton to write to the Chancellor citing numerous business issues that warrant attention in his forthcoming autumn statement.
The letter in full is below.
The BII’s #MyPub campaign has also called on licensees across the country to write to their MPs, asking for their backing for the continuation of the 75% business rates relief seen in England and Wales members, as well as an extension of the same relief to Scottish businesses.
Any operators wishing to take part can visit the #MyPub campaign page on the BII website here.
