Lewes MP Norman Baker pulling a pint
to celebrate the success of his campaign
to get Harvey's Best Bitter installed as a 'guest beer'
in the Stranger's Bar at the House of Commons.

Press Release from Norman Basker's office (26.10.06) : Lewes MP, Norman Baker, has this week served up his first pint of Harvey’s Best Bitter after a successful campaign to feature the local beer as a guest ale in the House of Commons bars.

This move coincides with Norman’s backing of the campaign to keep Harveys in the Lewes Arms in the wake of ongoing attempts of Greene King brewery to replace it with a re-branded version of its own ale. The local MP has now written to Greene King to request a meeting with senior representatives to call for an immediate review of the decision.

Norman, who is a member of the All Party Beer Group, has also added his backing to a number of parliamentary motions supporting English breweries including those calling for the extension of small breweries relief and asking the House of Commons authorities to stock more real ales in the parliamentary bars instead of imported lager.
