CAMRA launches General Election Campaign

With voters heading to the polls on 7th May, now is the perfect time to ensure pubs and real ale are priorities for the next Government. CAMRA has now launched its General Election campaign and has produced a Manifesto for Pubs and Real Ale.

So far more than 570 candidates have pledged to:

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

CAMRA’s goal is to improve on the 670 candidates who supported us before the 2010 General Election.
