Grahame Morris MP has pledged his support for the Long Live the Local Campaign to help pubs in Easington keep their doors open. Grahame Morris joins the more than 240,000 people who have signed the petition so far, including 371 in Easington alone.
Grahame Morris MP is calling on the Government to cut beer tax at the Budget. With £1 in every £3 pounds spent in UK pubs going to the taxman, British drinkers now pay 40% of all beer tax across the EU, but drink only 12% of the beer. Seven in ten alcoholic drinks served in pubs are beer, underlining how directly a cut in beer duty will help pubs. Brewing and pubs in Easington supports 597 jobs and contributes £10.3m to the local economy.
