Extension of Consultation: Minimum Unit Pricing for Alcohol
Have your say on the introduction of Minimum Unit Pricing for Alcohol into Northern Ireland
The Department for Health has launched a new public consultation on the introduction of Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) for Alcohol into Northern Ireland.
The aim of introducing MUP for Alcohol is to impact and help reduce high rates of alcohol specific deaths in Northern Ireland. Research has shown that the full social cost to the Northern Ireland economy of alcohol-related harm could be as high as £900 million per year.
