Nick talks with UCH students about the pub industry and tackling Booze Britain

April 3, 2009

beer5On Wednesday I was interviewed by Ryan Hubbard and his documentary-making team from the University Centre Hastings. 

It was really good to be involved in the project and to be able to give the Lib Dem perspective on helping to support the great British pub, but also about how to tackle the social problems that we have at the moment around binge-drinking.

There are 39 pubs closing per week across the country and pubs in 1066 country have been badly hit.

Lib Dem proposals aim to curb the ability of the supermarkets to offer loss-leading alcohol products, and to encourage the alcohol industry itself to distribute its profits to the greater benefit of tenants.
