Brigid Simmonds comments on Pubs Code Adjudicator enquiry statistics


Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, has commented on figures released today by the Pubs Code Adjudicator around the number of enquiries received by his office:

“The number of inquiries shows there is already very good awareness among tenants and leaseholders of the new system and that is to be welcomed.

“Clearly, the legislation is very complex and there are still different interpretations of some aspects.

“One task ahead will be to achieve greater clarity through additional guidance for both companies and lessees; I am sure this will be developed, in time and is very much something we would welcome.

“You would also expect to see a far greater number of inquiries at the outset of the new regime, and it will take time to gain a fuller picture of the ongoing demand for use of the statutory system’s services.”
