Alcohol Concern: Price of alcohol influences drinking habits

This report is further proof of the impact cheap alcohol is having on the health and wellbeing of our young people.

They have told us loud and clear that the way in which alcohol is priced influences the way they drink. We also know that our young people are more likely to have experienced being drunk by the age of 13 than their peers in almost any other European country.

This survey shows just how urgent action on minimum unit pricing is and we're calling on the Government to set a 50p minimum unit price without delay.
