Minimum pricing and E cigarette ban proposals for Wales

Find a person by name

The Welsh Government is considering introducing a minimum unit price for alcohol and is also proposing to ban E-cigarettes in enclosed public places.

Consideration is being given to a minimum price of 50 pence per unit for alcohol to reduce the harms associated with alcohol misuse.  You will recall Westminster decided last year to ditch their plans for minimum pricing in favour of a ban on sales below the combined cost of VAT and duty which will be introduced on the 6 April 2014.  The Welsh Health Minister considers there is indisputable evidence that the price of alcohol matters.

Their proposals in relation to E-cigarette legislation is intended to address public concern that E-cigarettes normalise smoking.

Both proposals are likely to attract stiff opposition and it will be interesting to see how their proposals progress.
