Drop in alcohol sales across Scotland attributed to minimum unit pricing

Public Health Scotland has reported a decrease of nearly 5% in alcohol sales since the implementation of Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) policies in May 2018. The report compared figures from Scotland with those from England and Wales where there was no MUP for the same time period. Scotland’s Public Health Minister concluded that MUP had helped reduce alcohol consumption.
