David Burrowes calls for a minimum unit price of alcohol

28th February 2017

David Burrowes calls on the Government to take advantage of Brexit to implement a minimum unit price of alcohol to address the harm caused by cheap super-strength white cider.

24. The Minister has also received representations about a wholly different kind of cider that has not seen much of a real apple, and that is super-strength white cider, which is very harmful and cheap. Will she consider using the new freedoms following Brexit that will enable the Government to take seriously the evidence in favour of a minimum unit price of alcohol, given its consequences for the health of young and vulnerable people? [908972]


I am extremely well aware of the points my hon. Friend makes, not least, as I say, because of the role I last held in government. We look carefully at all these things, particularly the issue of white cider.
