Alcohol causing 'avoidable deaths' says MP Sarah Wollaston
Health campaigners say signs that the government will drop plans for minimum pricing on alcohol in England and Wales are a disaster for public health.
The cabinet is said to be split on the issue, which was designed to tackle problem drinking.
The Scottish Parliament has already passed a law to introduce a minimum price.
Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston, a former GP, said cheap alcohol drinking was causing ''avoidable deaths''.
