CAMRA's Beer Drinkers and Pub Goers Charter
Thank you all who have taken part in CAMRA’s General Election campaigning. This campaign has now ended. Over the course of our campaign 670 election candidates committed to speak up for real ale, community pubs and consumers.

CAMRA's new Beer Drinkers and Pub Goers Charter seeks to encourage all those standing for Parliament at the forthcoming General Election to support real ale, real pubs and consumer rights. We just need five minutes of your time to ensure that as many Election Candidates sign up to support CAMRA's campaigns as possible.

At this election we are likely to see the biggest changeover of MPs in a generation, with perhaps as many as 300 new MPs.

You can use this website to write to your local election candidates, and ask them to sign up to five key commitments, to work to:
1) Promote the interests of Britain’s pub goers
2) Champion well-run community pubs
3) Rebalance alcohol taxation to support beer and pubs
4) Reform the beer tie to deliver a fair deal for consumers
5) Support the role of well-run pubs as solutions to alcohol misuse

The more emails election candidates receive from their local voters, the more notice they will take of our campaign. Candidates who agree to support these five pledges will be provided with a logo (see right) to use in their publicity, as well as a template press release.

Please use the links on this website to download a PDF copy of the Charter, or if you would like hard copies to distribute locally please get in touch with Emily Ryans, CAMRA’s Campaigns Officer at
