Quoted in SHEmazing on Irish minimum alcohol pricing

The Irish women’s magazine SHEmazing quoted me on the issue of minimum alcohol pricing, currently discussed in the Republic of Ireland.

“The Irish government will vote this year to introduce minimum alcohol pricing as part of a wider Public Health Alcohol Bill.

A vote in favour of the action would see alcohol being charged at a minimum of 10cent per unit.

Bill Wirtz, Policy Analyst for the Consumer Choice Center has said that the act will have little impact on public health and an impact on the pockets of the most financially vulnerable.”
