Julian Smith MP meets representative from the Society of Independent Brewers

This week, Julian Smith MP met with James Calder, Head of Public Affairs at the Society of Independent Brewers, in Westminster, to discuss the breweries in the constituency and the impact of government policy.

SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers, which is based in Ripon, was established in 1980 to represent the interests of a number of independent breweries in Britain.

Julian Smith said ‘I was pleased to be able to discuss the breweries SIBA represents in our constituency with James. I am always keen to hear their views on issues such as beer duty and small breweries’ relief. We are very lucky to have so many wonderful independent breweries in our area.’
