The Government need to speed up measures aimed to protect pubs and their landlords after it emerged 26 a week are closing down, Labour have said.
They plan to use an opposition day debate to urge the Coalition to introduce a statutory code to protect landlords from exploitation at the hands of large companies.
Legislation was drawn up last year but kicked into the long grass to consider the huge number of responses the proposed laws received.
Shadow pubs minister Toby Perkins said: "A broad coalition including Camra, business organisations and trade unions are backing a new statutory code with teeth."
He continued: "A year ago, in response to pressure from campaigners and Labour, ministers said they'd take action but 12 months later they've failed to do so."
Workers who deliver beer, lager and soft drinks to pubs, clubs - and Downing Street - will stage a 24-hour strike tomorrow in a row over jobs.
Unite said the walkout by its members at Kuehne + Nagel Drinks Logistics (KNDL) from 10am would cause "significant disruption" to thousands of sites.
Pubs, clubs, airports, theatres, mainline railway stations, football grounds and Parliament will all be hit, said Unite.
KNDL said it had contingency plans and would seek to minimise disruption to deliveries.
The firm added it had been consulting employees for a number of years over the need to adapt its business model.
Picket lines will be mounted at depots across the country.
After the announcement that JD Wetherspoon is set to open its first pub at a motorway service station, ITV News viewers have been giving their views on the issue on our Facebook page:
The road safety charity Brake has said that the opening of the first motorway pub is "desperately worrying" as it could pose a "potentially deadly temptation to drivers".
Spokesperson Richard Coteau said: "There is widespread misunderstanding about the fact that even a small amount of alcohol has a significant impact on your ability to drive safely, so it’s desperately worrying that some drivers might think it’s okay to stop off for a quick drink on their way home."
"Research is clear that just one drink inflates your crash risk. That’s why our advice to drivers is if you are driving, don't drink any amount of alcohol – not a drop," he added.
The chairman of the Alcohol Health Alliance (AHA), which brings together organisations focussed on tackling alcohol misuse, has condemned plans for the first Wetherspoon motorway pub:
The nation's first Wetherspoon motorway pub will open at the Extra service station on the M40 near Beaconsfield, around four miles outside the capital's M25 ring road.
Extra's website describes it as "one of the newest and most attractive Motorway Service Areas in Europe".
The £2 million development has been given the go-ahead by Thames Valley Police and South Bucks District Council.
As part of its application, JD Wetherspoon said the pub would display notices reminding customers of the dangers of drink-driving, although a spokesman said bar staff would not ask customers whether they were driving.
Pub chain JD Wetherspoon has been given the green light to open its first pub at a motorway service station despite criticism from campaigners that it will "tempt" drivers to drink.
The new bar will open at the Extra service station in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire later this year and will be licensed to serve alcohol between 8am and 1am.
Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin called the unprecedented pub an "exciting new development" and said he hoped its would be "the first of many Wetherspoon's on the motorway".
However, road safety groups including Brake and the Alcohol Health Alliance have condemned the move saying the bar will send the wrong message to drivers.
Pub chain JD Wetherspoon is to open 30 new pubs and create 1,200 jobs next year.
The company is to invest more than £35 million in areas including Cardiff, Fort William, Selby, Whitby, New Brighton and Fraserburgh.
Chairman Tim Martin said: "We are...pleased to be creating so many new jobs, especially during a recession."
But he warned: "There is no question that we would open more pubs and create more jobs in 2013 if the increasing tax burden on pubs was reduced."
The real ale campaign group Camra says that British pubs are closing at a rate of 12 per week, and that above-inflation tax on beer is partly to blame.
Lancashire and the West Midlands are most severely affected by pub closures, their study found. Pubs in towns are closing twice as fast as those in the countryside.
Camra is urging people to sign its e-petition calling for an end toabove-inflation beer tax increases in response to a 42% increase in duty since2008. More than 33,000 have signed up so far.
The group's chief executive Mike Benner said: "Pubs are so central to our society that whole communities can grow around a particular pub. A threat to the future of traditional pubs is therefore also a threat to countless social groups within Britain that thrive because of their local."
