BBPA comments on Tower Hamlets Late Night Levy introduction


BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds comments:

“This is very disappointing, and will damage the economy of a vibrant, inner London borough with a beer and pub sector that employs over 2,800 people – a point we had made very clear to the council on two occasions.

“Other authorities have turned away from a levy, and a recent House of Lords report has concluded that the Late Night Levy has “failed to reach its objectives and should be abolished.

“When it comes to addressing any issues in the night-time economy, there are far better solutions than this punishing new tax on local business, such as Business Improvement Districts".
