Minimum alcohol pricing is coming our way
Some gossip I picked up from the SIBA do the other day is that the government are very keen on minimum pricing for alcohol. Apparetly alcohol duty is unlikely to have any major reforms, but as soon as they can figure out a way of doing it a minimum price per unit of alcohol will be brought in. And guess what? The main reason seems to be to keep the newspapers happy.
