The debate about a minimum price for alcohol has been prompted by concerns about high levels of drinking, its effect on public health and public order, and a widespread belief that most of the alcohol which contributes to drunken behaviour is irresponsibly priced and sold. One policy option is to set a minimum price per unit of alcohol. Another is to ban the sale of alcohol below cost price (the level of alcohol duty plus VAT).
