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 .
The proposal for the minimum price per unit for alcohol law should be withdrawn. It inflates prices for everyone (including those who drink responsibly) and does not actually tackle the cause of any alcohol abuse or irresponsible drinking, this only addresses a symptom. Other methods such as through education to school children, further advice & methods to parents on teaching responsible drinking etc should be looked act. Not a scatter gun or arbitrary rising of prices that go into the pockets of the retailer.
