Minimum Pricing


Report shows dangers of cheap alcohol - days before minimum pricing case

The report highlighted the dangers of cheap vodka and white cider

ALCOHOLICS who drink mainly cheap vodka and cider are more likely to die, according to a recent report – just days before a Supreme Court appeal on unit pricing is to be heard.

The study, conducted by Edinburgh Napier University and Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problem (SHAAP), found that respondents who died paid significantly less per unit of alcohol, than those who survived.
