As I understand the expected increases in duty are not linked to a 50p per unit system. Tax duties are different for the various categories of alcohol but the idea of a minimum price would be to ensure that alcohol is not available so cheaply whatever category.

Can anyone advise if duty will be increased to impose the minimum price of 50p per unit, or will the way duty is costed be changed - eg by units rather than the current ltrs of alcohol - which in spirits is currently £22.20. Thanks
