Government plans for new code of practice for pub companies

In response to the Government consultation document plans for new code of practice for pub companies Tim Hulme, BII (British Institute of Innkeeping) chief executive has issued the following comment:

“Anything that helps stop unfair practice is good.  While the voluntary code was beginning to produce clear results, if there is to be a statutary code, then what we need is smart legislation that does not hinder our members running their businesses nor adversely impact pub-owning companies that operate tied agreements, the vast majority of whom we believe conduct their businesses in a fair and equitable manner.

“Through the consultation, we look forward to representing our members’ views on this issue and on the tie, which we believe when applied appropriately is inherently a good thing for pubs.”
