Would new taxes on alcohol and pop make you drink less?

29 January 2013

Dr Eamonn Butler is a guest on BBC Radio Wales discussing the negative impact of minimum alcohol pricing and a 20p per litre sugary drinks tax. 

Eamonn argues that a low tax won't change people's behaviour and that any money raised on the 20p tax on fizzy drinks would be spent on the bureaucracy to bring it in.
