This move is to be welcomed. As over three quarters of alcohol sold in Scotland is via off licence sales it is therefore unsupervised as well as being extremely cheap depending on what has been chosen. Given the damage excessive alcohol consumption can cause in terms of health and the social aspects e.g. domestic violence, effect on families, antisocial behaviour to name a few, an intervention such as this will hopefully prove to be positive in helping to reduce levels of drinking for some individuals.
