Cameron 'Backing Alcohol Minimum Price'


The Prime Minister is said to be backing plans for minimum pricing for alcohol.

David Cameron will override his Cabinet who fear it breaches European rules, it is reported.
Minimum pricing has the biggest impact on the cheapest and strongest drinks and earlier this month a group of leading academics and health experts claimed the move would save thousands of lives.
Proposals for a charge per unit of between 40p and 50p would raise £700m a year, which could go to the NHS, the Daily Telegraph says.
