Commenting on the launch of a consultation on personal licences by the Home Office today, Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, said:

“We welcome the recognition from the Minister that local pubs play a positive role in communities and drive growth. We support the Government’s intention to free up responsible pub businesses and reduce costs, and we will be looking at these proposals in detail and discuss their potential impact with our members.”
