/ Pub Companies Consultation
23 Apr 2013
The Business Secretary wrote to me earlier this week about the launch of a consultation on ensuring that the relationship between pub companies and tenants is a fair one.
Over the last few years I have been contacted by many concerned constituents about the relationship between large pub companies and their tenants. Indeed this issue has been the subject of a number of investigations and reviews, including four inquiries by the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee over the last decade.
The consultation centres on establishing a Statutory Code and an independent Adjudicator for the pubs sector to govern the relationship between large pub companies and their tenants.
The consultation is running for eight weeks and closes on 14 June 2013. In addition to the formal consultation, a short internet questionnaire is available for individual tenants and consumers to express their views on this matter. Both the consultation and the internet questionnaire can be found online at: www.gov.uk/government/publications?publication_filter_option=consultations
