The Scottish Health and Sport Committee today (27 November) called for views on minimum pricing following the introduction of the long-awaited Alcohol Bill yesterday.

The committee has said it welcomes evidence from individuals as well as organisations and professional bodies and intends that evidence received will inform its consideration of the Bill at ‘Stage One’.

Following consideration of the written submissions received, the committee said it will agree a programme of oral evidence sessions and may request further written evidence as required.

The closing date for receipt of submissions is 20 January. Those interested in submitting their views can visit the Health and Sport Committee webpage for guidance on how to do so.
