Call for evidence on Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Bill


The Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee is today calling for evidence from all interested parties on the general principles of the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Bill, as introduced into the Scottish Parliament by the Scottish Government on 31 October 2011.

The main purpose of the Bill is to introduce a minimum price of alcohol below which alcohol must not be sold on licensed premises. The minimum price will be set according to the strength of the alcohol, the volume of the alcohol and the minimum price per unit.

In order to inform its scrutiny, the Committee welcomes views on the particular areas highlighted in its call for written evidence.
