Minimum Price for Alcohol

On Tuesday in the Marketing and Society lecture, I talked about the possibility of a minimum price for Alcohol being imposed in order to deter excessive consumption. I stated that although plans were quite advanced in Scotland, there seemed to be no strong appetite for similar in England. I was wrong ! The Government today announced plans for a minimum price of 40p per unit and they also published a new alcohol consumption strategy.
