    An article in last week's Times said that 15 to 25 year olds are drinking a lot less than they did 10 years ago. Apologies for not having that link.

    Education is the right way, not punishing the majority of responsible drinkers Commie style.
    I agree with you about education but, make no mistake, this isn't punishing the majority. It's punishing a minority. It just so happens that that minority is the low-paid and those in poverty.

    Think maybe the best way forward is to let Scotland try it out first and we'll see what he results are - then take it from there
    I'm all for that. It's a low-cost experiment, with potentially huge benefits.

    Something in the back of my head suggests this has been tried before, the thoughts of the Scottish public were discounted until the "British" public made their voices heard by rioting down in that the London,,,,

    Yes, it does, unless the buyer can prove they have a licence to sell alcohol to the public.

    Increasing prices on the cheapest drink only punishes one particular set of fellow human beings.

    There is nothing more expensive than being poor.

    Agree but it's still a good line.
    Like "Life is cheap except with those who are dear"

    As there has been very little coverage of this in England has it made any difference to pub prices?

    Pub prices should be unaffected, as they already sell at a price much higher than the minimum.

    Would it be right to say that they can still purchase for less than 50p a unit? That cap is only for individual customers?

    Think so.

    As far as I know, cash and carry's and the likes need to have proof that the buyer is a legitimate trader.
