In response to suggestions that plans for minimum alcohol pricing might be scrapped, GP and Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston made her case on Twitter:
Light & Moderate drinkers are subsidising cheap booze for the heaviest drinkers. Why do we have to pay the £20bn cost for NHS & police?
What is the lifetime cost of supporting a child with fetal alcohol syndrome? More importantly what is the human cost ?
Not saying #minimumpricing is the only answer but all other answers undermined if alcohol costs 20ppu & cheaper to be drunk than eat
