PLANS for a statutory code which would give new rights to landlords running tied pubs have been praised by Skipton MP Julian Smith.

As part of the system, landlords can now request a rent review from pub companies if it has been five years or more since the last one.

Mr Smith said: “I am delighted that action is being taken to support tied pubs, giving pub landlords peace of mind that they will be able to get a fair deal on their rent.

“Pubs are an important part of life in my constituency and I have been working hard to stand up for them, and the entire brewing industry. We must do all we can to ensure they remain at the heart of our communities and create jobs."

An independent adjudicator would have powers to punish pub companies flouting the regulations.
