EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


This Order revokes the Supply of Beer (Loan Ties, Licensed Premises and Wholesale Prices) Order 1989 which provides that where a brewer makes a loan or gives other financial assistance in return for a tie to his products, the recipient of the loan must be able to repay it, or make whatever other payment may be due upon giving not more than three months' notice, and the tie must then cease.

The 1989 Order also prohibits brewers from imposing any prohibition on the use of the premises as licensed premises when they dispose of them, requires brewers to publish wholesale price lists for beer and not charge higher prices, requires discounts for collection to be shown and prohibits brewers from withholding wholesale beer supplies except where there are reasonable doubts about credit-worthiness, the return of containers or the handling or keeping of beer.
