General Election 2017

posted 5 May 2017, 07:55 by Walsall WebMaster
On Tuesday 18 April, Prime Minister Theresa May unexpectedly called a “snap” General Election for Thursday 8 June.

The election provides CAMRA with an opportunity to mobilise members to lobby their election candidates to support beer and pubs. At the last General Election in 2015, we secured support from 1,160 candidates who have contributed to our subsequent campaigning successes in Parliament.

The campaign will be launched next week – giving us just one month to sign up as many election candidates as possible. CAMRA is asking election candidates to pledge their support for Britain’s pub-goers and beer drinkers by committing to,

 ● Celebrate and promote Britain’s 1,540 breweries 

● Support action to help pubs thrive 

● Represent the interest of pub-goers, beer and cider drinkers
