New alcohol laws would allow minimum price per unit

Proposals expected before House of Keys in January

New laws which would allow the Isle of Man Government to set a minimum price for alcohol are currently being drafted.

Home Affairs Minister Graham Cregeen confirmed at this week's sitting of the House of Keys that work on a new licensing bill is underway, which would allow his department to set a minimum price per unit.

The proposals are due to go out to public consultation next month, before being put before the House of Keys in January next year.

The update comes following a question from Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper.
