Alcohol minimum pricing on back burner

Plans to implement a minimum price per unit on alcohol in a bid to reduce alcohol consumption and binge drinking in England and Wales have been halted.

AlcoholMinister Jeremy Browne reported that there was not enough concrete evidence to support the idea that minimum pricing could reduce the harmful effects associated with problem drinkers without having a negative impact on those who maintain a responsible approach to alcohol consumption.

In this turnaround, the result of a consultation which saw only 34% backing the 45p per unit minimum price, with 56% opposed to the idea, multi buy promotions in convenience stores will also be allowed to continue.
