Minimum unit pricing for alcohol in Wales

The Welsh government has introduced minimum unit pricing for alcohol meaning that retailers must now charge a minimum of 50p per unit. The move is intended to address harmful drinking by limiting access to cheap, high strength alcohol. The policy follows a report from Scotland highlighting reductions in alcohol consumption following implementation of minimum unit pricing in 2018.
