Minimum pricing

Asked whether the PM is sad to see that minimum pricing will not go ahead, the PMS said that the government is banning sales of alcohol below the level of alcohol duty plus VAT, taking action to deal with the problems that have been seen with very cheap alcohol promotion.

Asked why the PM has dropped the plans, the PMS said that one of the things the PM has pointed to is that there is currently insufficient evidence and there are legal uncertainties, as it is currently subject to legal challenge in Scotland.
