    The statutory Pubs Code including the Market Rent Only option, introduced to tackle the exploitation of pub tenants by large pub companies, finally came into force today following a long campaign led by MP for Leeds North West and Chair of the Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, Greg Mulholland MP.

    The Pubs Code regulates the conduct of the large 6 pubcos after years of complaints of unfair tied pricing and rents that caused many publicans to fail and led to the closure of many pubs. Now tied tenants of pubcos owning more than 500 pubs now have the legal right to take the Market Rent Only option, meaning they can have an independent assessment of the rent on a free of tie basis and choose to pay only that to their pubco, freeing them from excessive marked up tied price lists. Overall 12,000 tenants will now benefit from better rights and protection when dealing with their pub company.

    Firstly can I thank those of you who have contacted me ahead of tonight's vote on Trident.

    I believe that the UK still needs a minimum nuclear deterrent, but not a like for like replacement of Trident. I would very much like to see the Government pushing hard for reductions in stock piles of nuclear weapons.
