Minimum alcohol price discussed by Guernsey health bosses

Health officials in Guernsey are considering introducing minimum-pricing on alcoholic drinks, the BBC has been told.

The idea is to be debated by the Health and Social Services Department (HSSD).

In England and Wales, the government is proposing a minimum price of 40p per unit of alcohol, in an effort to combat binge drinking.

Dr Nikki Brink, of the HSSD, said she would be following the proposals to see how it could be applied in Guernsey.
