Jubilee – Government consults on extra licensing hours


British Beer & Pub Association Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds Comments:

“This is good news, as we have been calling for extra hours which will keep Britain’s pubs right at the heart of this huge national celebration, just as they were for the Royal Wedding.

“We will be hoping to persuade the Government to extend this further, and certainly to the Olympic and Paralympic opening and closing ceremonies.”

The British Beer & Pub Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96 per cent of the beer brewed in the UK and own nearly two thirds of Britain’s 52,500 pubs.
