Social Cohesion Revisited

After I wrote about the “Big Society” there was some debate about what I said about pubs and cheap supermarket booze.  Well, it seems the coalition agrees with me on this issue:

  • We will ban the sale of alcohol below cost price.
  • We will review alcohol taxation and pricing to ensure it tackles binge drinking without unfairly penalising responsible drinkers, pubs and important local industries.

And on the other side of the issue, there are of course measures to ensure licenses can be reviewed (and revoked) and measures to discourage under-age drinking.
