Commenting on the publication of lockdown regulations which
state that alcohol can be soldas takeaway or delivery if it
is pre-ordered by phone or online, CAMRA’s National Chairman
Nik Antona said:

“I am delighted that the Government has listened to the
concerns of thousands of CAMRA members, concerned pub-goers, and
beer lovers who have e-mailed their MPs in the last 48 hours urging
the Government to allow pubs and breweries to sell
alcohol as takeaway during the second lockdown.

“This is a vital lifeline for local pubs and breweries across
England over the coming four weeks, giving them a lifeline
of income and allowing people to support local businesses.

“CAMRA continues to call on the Government to bring in a
comprehensive, long-term financial support package to support all
pubs and breweries through the lockdown and the tough months that
will follow this winter. Without a sector-specific support package,
we risk seeing thousands of pubs and breweries closing their doors
for good.â€
