Pub Companies - Business and Enterprise Committee Contents

Memorandum submitted by Gareth Thomas MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Trade and Consumer Affairs, BERR

  I am writing to confirm that BERR does not intend to lodge evidence with the Committee in its follow up inquiry into pubcos. I understand that this message has been relayed informally to you via BERR's parliamentary branch.

  I am aware of the Committee's work and have followed developments since the announced launch of the inquiry on 25 June. BERR has not submitted written evidence during the period to 29 September. At this stage I believe that the parties who are involved in the sector are best placed to provide evidence on how the market is working.

  I look forward to reading the final report.
