Jeremy Corbyn, the new leader of the Opposition, is a teetotaller, and despite delivering his victory speech in a Westminster pub, he hasn’t spoken often on them in parliament. But that hasn’t stopped him supporting a wide range of pub-related motions in the House of Commons across his career.
In the last parliament, he was a signatory for many of Save the Pub group chair and Liberal Democrat MP, Greg Mulholland’s Early Day Motions.
Corbyn has put his name to parliamentary business including campaigns against large pub companies, and has been a signatory for motions supporting licensees, music in pubs and community pubs in general.
Most recently, he was one of only 10 MPs to sign an Early Day Motion supporting ‘Paul’s Pledge’ – a campaign against alcohol-fuelled violence.
