South Craven MP Julian Smith has been hailed a champion by the beer industry.

He received a special champions award from the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA), Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) for helping secure the historic cut in beer duty in last year’s Budget.

“Last year’s cut in the duty on beer was hugely important in sending a message of support to the brewing and pub industry across the country, and especially here in rural North Yorkshire,” said Mr Smith, pictured above.

“Our pubs are at the heart of our communities, and our brewers make some of the best beers in the world, so I will continue to support efforts in Parliament to ensure they have a strong future.”
