Alan Love, UKIP General Election candidate for Lagan Valley, has pledged to support local pubs and breweries.

The three pledges are highlighted in the Manifesto for Pubs and Real Ale by CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, which sets out a package of reforms they are seeking from the next Government.

These important pledges are to support well-run community pubs, promote Britain’s 1,300 breweries and to represent pub goers and beer drinkers.

Tim Page, CAMRA’s Chief Executive welcomed Alan Love’s support, saying: “We are delighted that Alan has pledged his support for pubs, breweries and consumers.”

Mr Love added: “I am proud to be speaking up for pubs and real ale. Well-run community pubs play a crucial role in local life and make a huge contribution to the local economy. Lagan Valley has a rich heritage of pubs and brewing. A good pub is one of the lynch pins of a contented community. If elected, I will continue to show my support in Parliament.”
