Since Newby was appointed last year, Greg Mulholland has repeatedly queried the PCA's position due to his previous role as a director of Fleurets, the specialist property valuers.
In that position, Paul Newby dealt with such pub companies as Enterprise Inns and Punch Taverns on a regular basis, which Mulholland and publicans' pressure groups feel constitutes as conflict of interest. Greg Mulholland, ending the debate, told the minister: "You have heard today that the position of Paul Newby is untenable. *Earlier this month, Greg Mulholland was voted out of his role as chairman of the All-Parliamentary Save the Pubs group.
After being elected Chairman, Greg Mulholland said "To become Chairman of an All-Party Group of a sport you love is a great privilege.

Mulholland leads new pub reform group
Greg Mulholland MP, who also chairs the Parliamentary Save the Pub Group, and is an outspoken critic of the national pubcos, said the new organisation will work with the pub industry towards common goals. The LibDem MP, who led the parliamentary campaign to enshrine the "market rent only option" in the pubs code agreed by parliament shortly before the general election, says the new group had been formed to counter "self-interested lobbying of vested corporate interests in the pub sector". The Market Rent Only option means that pubco tenants who agree to pay a negotiated market rent for their pub - which may be higher than the rent negotiated with the owning pub company - can go "free of the tie" and buy in beers of their choice to give greater choice to customers. Greg Mulholland Greg Mulholland (above) said he is prepared to collaborate with the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA), of which he has been a vocal critic for its uncritical support of big brewers and pubcos. "The British Pub Confederation will ensure that the voice of pubs, publicans and consumers is heard alongside the BBPA," he said.
