Nearly 40 MPs packed in to the Commons during the early hours of Tuesday to call on the Government to cut the tax on beer sold in pubs.


Adjournment debates usually attract just a handful of MPs, but 38 MPs - mostly Tories - stayed in the Commons until past midnight to support Gavin Williamson's call for ministers to freeze or reverse the beer duty escalator.
