Alcohol Action Ireland Pre Budget Submission 2014

Alcohol Action Ireland's Pre-Budget Submission 2014 calls for the introduction of minimum pricing. Minimum pricing has the potential to significantly reduce alcohol-related harm in Ireland, resulting in a reduction of the substantial costs incurred by the State and the number of lives lost due to alcohol in Ireland every year. It would effectively target those drinkers choosing the cheapest and strongest alcohol products, who would benefit most from a reduction in their consumption, while having little or no effect on low-risk drinkers. In conjunction with minimum pricing, a very modest "social responsibility" levy on the alcohol industry would make a significant contribution to funding activities and initiatives that would help to reduce the social and health harms caused by its products in Ireland.
