The future of the legislation for minimum alcohol pricing is unclear amid government fears over the details.
According to the Sunday Times this week’s plans to make a new policy declaration on alcohol pricing have been postponed.
The newspaper reported that, “civil servants have been ordered to check the modelling to ensure the figures are watertight because of worries about a legal challenge from the alcohol industry if there are any errors.”
The newspaper went on to say that it is now thought the announcement will not be made for months.Yeah, good luck with that.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall considering the 'evidence' is slapdash and the University which conducted it is incompetent.
