MP Priti Patel has been honoured with a “beer champions” award in Parliament in recognition of her work supporting the drinks industry.

The award, presented each year by the British Beer & Pub Association and the Society of Independent Brewers, highlights Ms Patel’s role in helping to secure cuts in beer duty.

Welcoming the award, she said she was “proud” to be part of a Government, which had cut duty, “to support growth in the industry as well as local pubs.”
