Minimum Unit Pricing in England remains under review. The Government is developing a new cross-government alcohol strategy which will set out targeted action to prevent and reduce harmful drinking, support vulnerable people affected by others’ alcohol misuse and improve the pathway into treatment for people with alcohol dependency.

The new strategy will not include a commitment to introduce MUP at this time but Public Health England will be commissioned to carry out a scientific review into the impact of minimum unit pricing following its introduction in Scotland.
