Fiona Dickie has been appointed by the government as the new Pubs Code Adjudicator. She is currently deputy PCA and will take over the new role in May.
Nik Antona, chairman of the Campaign for Real Ale, said: “CAMRA congratulates Fiona Dickie on her appointment as Pubs Code Adjudicator. We look forward to working with her to ensure the Pubs Code is fit for purpose and works for the benefit of tenants.
“Our research has shown that the Pubs Code isn’t delivering on its aims to support licensees. The yet uncompleted Pubs Code Review is the opportunity to make changes to the Pubs Code regulations. This will help ensure that tied tenants are no worse off than free-of-tie tenants, and to stop pub companies circumventing the code.”
