The bill to help Scottish tied pubs go free of tie has passed stage 1 with a unanimous vote you can see the historic vote below.
Scottish Government backed the bill as did all the major parties – the plight of tied pubs has become a truly cross-party issue.
Reform is intended to deliver a right for tied publicans to go free of tie on demand, key policies to fair and lawful dealing, to be no worse off, and to rebalance risk and reward for tenants.
