Government release alcohol strategy




This strategy sets out Government proposals to cut down alcohol fuelled violence and disorder and reduce the number of people drinking to damaging levels. It includes commitments to introduce a minimum unit price for alcohol; consult on a ban on the sale of multi-buy alcohol discounting; introduce stronger powers for local areas to control the density of licensed premises; and pilot sobriety schemes to challenge alcohol-related offending.
