Scottish court ruling - MUP

The Scottish government has welcomed a "landmark ruling" by the country's highest civil court backing its plans to bring in minimum pricing for alcohol.  The ruling was welcomed by Alcohol Action Ireland which hopes to see minimum unit pricing (MUP) implemented both here and in Scotland as soon as possible; it sees MUP as one of the key measures contained in the Public Health (Alcohol) Bil, the first ever public health legislation that aims to reduce the wide range of alcohol harms suffered by individuals, families, communities and society as whole. Other measures in the Bill address the health labelling of alcohol, as well as seeking to protect children from exposure to alcohol marketing.
