We would strongly recommend you contact your MP in advance of the mass lobby to pre-arrange a meeting to avoid disappointment on the day.

Here is a guideline as to what to mention in your email or letter to your MP:

1. Mention that you’re are a constituent (include your home address on the letter to prove this – MPs only respond to their constituents)

2. Arrange to meet your MP (See table below for suggested times – please try to stick to these times to help manage the flow into Parliament).

3. Mention that you are a member of CAMRA and if possible name the branch.

4. Explain a little about CAMRA – volunteer-led, not for profit, consumer group with 140,000 members nationwide, campaigns to promote and protect real ale and community pubs.

5. Date of mass lobby (Wednesday 12th December).

7. Other facts you could include – a third of every pint goes straight to the Government in duty and VAT; Brits pay the second highest rate of beer tax in EU; beer tax has been hiked by 42% since 2008; 4,500 UK pubs have closed since 2008.

8. Here are some facts about your constituency you could include.
