  All Party Parliamentary Pub Group Inquiry
In response to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 crisis, the Pubs APPG is launching an inquiry that will aim to understand how pubs have been affected, and what they need from the Government to thrive in the coming months and years.
To do this, the Pubs APPG wants to listen to the people who have made pubs the heart of so many communities, and ask what their businesses need.
Their responses will be used to produce a report and recommendations on how the Government can support pubs and publicans in the future.
To make your contibution to the inquiry and help with the survival of Real Ale and British pubs follow this link -
