More information on the consultation, are available at the following link.

While introducing the consultation Northern Irish Authorities put emphasis on the harm caused by alcohol consumption not only on individual’s health but on the whole society mentioning alcohol-related anti-social behaviours, the pressure on hospitals due to alcohol-related admissions, alcohol-related absenteeism at work, domestic or sexual violence, and increase of crime

Respondents to the consultation will be asked to provide feedback on:

  • if MUP for alcohol is the most effective way of achieving the policy aim;
  • what information or evidence should be considered when setting a MUP for alcohol and the level MUP should be set at initially;
  • if the level of the MUP should be varied over time and, if so, how;
  • the mechanisms for setting the MUP, including the formula and how it will be monitored.
