I think the movement to implement a minimum cost per unit on alcohol is an interesting one. I am not sure how effective it will be in terms of encouraging healthier use of alcohol.

Personally i feel that a better move would be to impose a higher tax rate on alcohol to reflect increased costs to the NHS and also improve levels of education. This has worked well with reducing the numbers of smokers.
