A Norfolk landlady is urging MPs to back changes which she believes could help stop the growing number of pubs closing.
Dawn Hopkins, landlady at The Rose Inn, said: "Pubs are getting turned into supermarkets, being developed for housing. Licencees are struggling and, if you have a pub company involved, it's even harder to make a living with the rents they charge and charging you double the amount for your beer that you would pay if you went directly to the breweries."
The House of Commons is due to debate an amendment to the Small Business Bill. It could help to secure fair rents and cheaper beer prices for licencees tied to big pub companies.
Sainsbury's are selling "in the region of 5,000" of the chocolate bars they have created to support the Royal British Legion.
The bars feature in a special Christmas advert that recreates the famous truce between British and German troops in December 1914.
They are retailing for £1, with 50p going to the charity, which includes all the supermarket's profits plus a donation from Sainsbury's.
Mark Given, Head of Brand Communications, said:
We partnered with The Royal British Legion, in the 20th year of our relationship with them, to ensure we tell this story with authenticity and respect and we’re selling in the region of 5,000 every hour of the chocolate bars we have made to help to raise additional funds for them.

Charges have been introduced for on-street parking in some roads in Cambridge on a Sunday.
The County Council agreed to the charge, which came into force yesterday, (21st September) after the rise in the number of people shopping in the city on a Sunday.

The new charges only apply to some roads in the city centre and surrounding area of Cambridge accounting for 800 of the 1600 bays available.
