Labour’s would-be MP Ken Rustidge is calling for a review of taxation on supermarket alcohol sales in a bid to help pubs.

The Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North East Cambs made the call during a recent visit to the Mile Tree Brewery in Wisbech, which was started with the help of European funding.

During his visit Mr Rustidge said he is keen to support the development local produce using ingredients from the local area.

He also wants to ensure that rural pubs remain the centre of the community, which is why he is keen to see taxation on supermarket alcohol sales looked at to create a ‘level playing field’ for the whole of the licensed industry.
