Julian writes to Chancellor ahead of Autumn Statement

November 18, 2023

Ahead of tomorrow’s Autumn Statement, Julian has written to the Chancellor of the Exchequer calling for targeted support to help York’s economy.

Along with Alun Cairns MP and supporters of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group , Julian has written to the Chancellor asking for more support for our pubs and breweries. York is famous for our hostelries and we make some of the best beer in country here in Yorkshire (many pints of which are brewed at Ainsty Ales in Acaster Malbis) but prices are rising and more must be done to level the playing field against the supermarkets.Our main requests are:

An extension of the current 75% Retail, Hospitality, and Leisure(RHL) business rates relief after 31st March 2024, combined with a freeze in the current multiplier.

Increase the £110,000 RHL scheme cap.

Scrap planned increases to beer duty.

Widen the draught duty differential further.

After sending the letter, Julian said:

“Pubs are the beating heart of our communities and we must do all we can to support them. Too often we only realise how important they are after they have closed. We need reforms to reverse the trend and give a much needed boost to our locals”

Following meetings with York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, Julian has also written to the Chancellor asking for increased support for the wider hospitality and tourism sectors.
