Alcohol Action Ireland Pre-Budget Submission 2020
This Pre-Budget submission seeks to advise the Minister’s consideration of Budget 2020 on four important
matters: alcohol products tax; state subsidies to the alcohol industry; establishment of social responsibility levy on Off-Trade alcohol sales and the introduction of Minimum unit pricing for alcohol products.
2019 Annual Price Survey
The Market review and Price survey was carried out in two Dublin locations: city centre and north county; one regional city: Sligo, and one town: Longford, by Alcohol Action Ireland between 24 -26 July 2019.
A range of convenience stores and supermarkets were surveyed: Aldi, Centra, Dunnes, Lidl, Spar, Supervalu and Tesco.
As well as the retail price, the survey shows the price per standard drink (10 grams of alcohol) contained in the product, to illustrate how much it costs for a woman and man to reach a low-risk drinking guideline limit, if purchasing the cheapest alcohol products for sale in the off-trade.
