Public Affairs Network

Public Affairs Network

The Public Affairs Network brings together public affairs professionals from across member companies and sends out regular updates on the political and regulatory environment. It also acts as a forum for discussing and formulating policy positions.


Key Issues:

The Public Affairs Network deals primarily with the impact of new policy announced by the UK Government. Currently, the Network is working on the industry response to the Government’s Alcohol Strategy and the work being done through the Public Health Responsibility Deal. The Network also works on issues emanating from the devolved administrations, particularly around licensing.
