Original consultation

We want your views on proposals to introduce a minimum unit price for alcohol in Wales.

Consultation description

There is compelling evidence, built up over decades of research, that excessive intake of alcohol causes harm. The likelihood of harm is proportionate to the amount of alcohol consumed.

We are consulting on a proposal for tackling the health harms associated with alcohol misuse, which would:

  • set a minimum price for a unit of alcohol
  • affect drinks sold at cheap prices relative to their alcohol content.
