BBPA comments on first pub code consultation


Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive:

“There is a large amount of detail to be studied in these proposals, but I do welcome that the Government appears not to be proceeding with parallel rent assessments, which we always argued strongly would be too costly and complex to operate.

“We also welcome proposals to allow for an MRO waiver in return for a significant capital investment. Over £200 million is invested by BBPA members in their leased and tenanted pub estates, each year. It is essential that this investment continues.

“We will be responding in detail as we do need to work very closely with Department of Business, Innovation & Skills, and tenants’ representatives to make the legislation work in practice.”
