    Their views were echoed today by MPs including Chair of the parliamentary Save the Pub Group, Greg Mulholland MP, who also coordinated the Fair Deal for Your Local campaign. Mulholland said the draft code is "entirely unacceptable", as it does not abide by the legislation approved by the House of Commons last November. Campaigners accused the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) of acting in "bad faith", ignoring the Commons legislation and advice of tenants' groups and pub campaigners in favour of creating a code which supported big businesses.
