The Scottish Government plans to introduce Minimum Unit Pricing for alcohol on 1 May 2018. Before they introduce the Minimum Unit Price, the Scottish Ministers ran a public consultation to gather views from people, businesses, public bodies and interested parties about the Scottish Government’s preferred price of 50 pence per unit of alcohol. This ran from 1 December 2017 to 26 January 2018. A report analysing the responses to the consultation was published on 26 February 2018 and is available at:
