Wales to go ahead with Minimum Unit Pricing despite lack of success in Scotland
Minimum unit pricing for alcohol in Wales appears to be going ahead despite evidence showing it has made no difference in Scotland.
The Welsh Assembly is planning to introduce minimum pricing on the 2nd March 2020 although recent reports show that minimum pricing is not reducing consumption in Scotland. The minimum unit pricing will be the same as in Scotland at 50p per unit of alcohol which equates to about £4.50 for a 12% abv wine. In Wales 42% of wine is sold below this minimum price.
