SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT’S POSITION ON MINIMUM UNIT PRICING OF ALCOHOL

Latest Scottish Government statement on MUP

Minimum Unit Pricing is essential for reducing alcohol-related harm in Scotland. This view is supported by the Scottish Parliament, the public health community, the Police, children’s charities and much of civic Scotland. The legislation embodies the pre-eminence that the European Treaties place on health and the life of humans, and the recognition that it is for the Member States to determine the level of protection which they wish to afford to public health and the way in which that level is to be achieved.
