Yesterday, the Supreme Court judged that minimum unit pricing is legal and can be implemented in Scotland, this is a big step forward in the process of responsible alcohol sales.

Action on Addiction is supporting the Alcohol Health Alliance's (AHA) campaign for minimum unit pricing. Graham Beech, the charity's Chief Executive has joined other members of the alliance in signing a letter which is featured in today’s Telegraph hailing the Supreme Court ruling as a victory for public health. We will also be backing AHA’s call for the same legislation to apply in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Over 23,500 people in England die each year from alcohol-related causes and Action on Addiction is dedicated to supporting those affected by alcohol addiction, specifically those in process of treatment and recovery.
