John Spellar MP Pledges Support for Local Pubs and Brewers

With  the cold snap set to continue John Spellar MP is reminding residents in Sandwell who are worried about staying warm or concerned about their energy bills to call the Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99.

The Home Heat Helpline is a free, impartial and confidential service that provides advice on rebates, grants for insulation and new boilers, and tips on saving energy. People in Sandwell are among the 1 in 10 households across the country that could benefit but many people don’t realise what support is available.

John Spellar MP said:

"During this cold weather, many local residents may be concerned about staying warm. I would urge these people to call the Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99. I would also ask people to look out for neighbours, friends or relatives who may be in difficulty and make sure they are aware of the Home Heat Helpline."

Warley MP John Spellar has today pledged to support local pubs and breweries.

The three pledges are highlighted in the Manifesto for Pubs and Real Ale by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, which sets out a package of reforms they are seeking from the next Government. These important pledges are to:

• Support well-run community pubs
• Promote Britain's 1,300 breweries
• Represent pub goers and beer drinkers.

Tim Page, CAMRA’s Chief Executive welcomed [name]’s support, saying:

“We are delighted that John Spellar has pledged their support for pubs, breweries and consumers. As, on average, 29 pubs close each week it is absolutely vital that our elected representatives recognise and champion the value of these important community assets, and work to protect them.

“CAMRA is urging the next Government to act to ensure that pubs are better protected in the planning system, that large pub companies treat their licensees fairly and that beer duty is set at a level which supports UK brewing.”

John Spellar added:

“I am proud to have spoken up for pubs and real ale during my time in Parliament. Well-run community pubs play a crucial role in local life and make a huge contribution to the local economy – with each injecting around £80,000 to the local area every year.

If elected, I will continue to show my support in Parliament.”
