Scotland to introduce 50p minimum price
There is strong international evidence that tackling price can help reduce alcohol consumption and related harm. Minimum unit pricing is an effective policy because it targets the drinkers causing the most harm to themselves and society, whilst having very little effect on moderate drinkers.
The introduction of minimum pricing has been delayed until the conclusion of legal proceedings brought by the alcohol industry. Find out more about minimum pricing

An evidence-based alcohol strategy for the UK
The strategy was developed by a group of experts indepdendent from the government and the alcohol industry, under the auspices of the Alcohol Health Alliance UK.
There was unanimous agreement that a 50p minimum unit price should be the priority. The strategy also calls for tougher restrictions on alcohol marketing, the empowerment of licensing authorities to control the overall availability of alcohol in their area, and a reduction in the drink-drive limit to 50mg/100ml.
