Minimum Alcohol Unit Pricing
- Posted on: 15/11/2017
ADS welcomes the decision by the UK Supreme Court today to allow the introduction of the 50p Minimum Unit Price for alcohol in Scotland. The implementation of this legislation – originally passed in 2012 – is long overdue. We believe that this measure of a 50p minimum price will lead to a reduction in the volume of high-strength, low-cost alcohol currently being consumed to hazardous levels.
