I have deliberately not made any comment on the House of Commons, Business and Enterprise Committee Report on Pub Companies and the future of the tie, preferring to sit firmly on the fence.
However, I have found and read the on-line version of the report. Apart from giving a good overall understanding of all of the issues, some of the fine detail of business practices within the industry is fascinating to put it mildly.
You too can download the 82 page report here if you feel so inclined.
Post script : I have just learned also that the 316 pages of oral and written evidence is available for download here.
