Post Alcohol Concern calls for end of 'pocket money' alcohol

A call has made for an end to the "pocket money" price of shop-bought alcohol fuelling under-age drinking.

Alcohol Concern Cymru said shop deals mean the weekly recommended alcohol limit for a man can be bought for less than £4 and a woman's for under £3.

It backs Welsh Assembly Government ministers' bid for power on alcohol licensing and pricing.

The charity said it wanted to see the unit price of alcohol raised to 50p as a way of deterring under-age drinking.

Andrew Misell, the charity's policy manager, said the "ludicrously cheap" price of alcohol saw it on sale in some places for the equivalent of 18p a unit.

He said: "If you take those low prices and you have retailers who are willing to turn a blind eye to underage purchases, then alcohol becomes available for young people.

"This is why we talk about "pocket money" prices. The issue with young people is that they tend to have less money. They may still be in education.

"If you are making alcohol available at such low prices, then young people may be able to get together enough money to buy a couple of litres of strong cider.

"You can get pretty drunk on that."
