ITV News' Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg asked her Twitter followers whether the reported scrapping of minimum alcohol prices was a victory for the drinks industry or common sense prevailing.
Here is a selection of your responses:
@itvlaurak Common sense prevails. Govt's job is to take care of the big stuff we can't do as individuals and leave us to run our own lives.
@itvlaurak victory for drinks industry; 2000 lives over the next decade sacrificed; burden on NHS; more crime; trebles all round.
@itvlaurak Min unit pricing a bad idea. Easy for politicians but alcohol abuse needs thoughtful policies about the reasons and culture in uk
