We invite comments on the proposed minimum price of 50 pence per unit which is set out in the draft Scottish Statutory Instrument at Annex A .
Police Scotland is committed to keeping people in our communities safe and ensuring we provide a service in times of crisis and need. Through public consultations, communities throughout Scotland have made it clear that tackling violence and disorder is of paramount importance. Excessive consumption of alcohol is often directly responsible for such criminal acts and therefore Police Scotland supports any measure that could potentially have a positive impact on alcohol fueled crime and disorder. The specific question as to the price of a unit of alcohol is not one on which Police Scotland will make direct comment at this time; however we will work in partnership through the Evaluation Advisory Group to evaluate the impact of this legislation, taking cognisance of a variety of factors including the unit price.
