The cost of minimum alcohol pricing

18 December 2012

Sam Bowman talks on BBC Radio Humberside on why minimum alcohol pricing is a bad idea and will not help problem drinkers. 

Sam argues that minimum alcohol pricing is unnecessary and alcohol consumption has already been dropping over the last few years. He claims that the Sheffield Alcohol Policy projections are completely bogus and this policy will hit the poor hardest and is based on a moral panic about an exaggerated issue.
