Calls for minimum 50p alcohol to tackle cheap drink

A group of leading medical organisations has called for the Government to set a minimum alcohol price of 50p per unit.

The Alcohol Health Alliance UK (AHA) said the move would tackle "head on" the problems caused by cheap drink and protect the next generation.

The AHA want to see a minimum unit price tariff target the heaviest drinkers who harm themselves and others around them, especially children.
