A modelling study by John Holmes, Yang Meng, Petra S Meier, Alan Brennan, Colin Angus, Alexia Campbell-Burton, Yelan Guo, Daniel Hill-McManus, Robin C Purshouse. Several countries are considering a minimum price policy for alcohol, but concerns exist about the potential effects on drinkers with low incomes. The study aimed to assess the effect of a £0·45 minimum unit price (1 unit is 8 g/10 mL ethanol) in England across the income and socioeconomic distributions.
