Eric Joyce MP: Alcohol minimum price 'abominable'

MP Eric Joyce, who was forced to quit the Labour Party after a drunken punch up in the House of Commons, has rejected the government's proposals for a minimum price of 40p per unit of alcohol.

Mr Joyce was speaking from his Bo'ness home where he was under curfew following the incident.

He was joined for a discussion with Newsnight's Emily Maitlis by Sarah Wollaston, a GP, Conservative MP and member of the Commons Health Select Committee.
