Professor Jonathan Chick and Dr Jan Gill discuss findings from their ongoing research into drinking behaviours in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Their research supports the evidence that those drinking at the most harmful levels purchase the cheapest alcohol – particularly white cider and cheap vodka. They conclude that minimum unit pricing is a targeted measure which would help tackle consumption among some of the most problematic drinkers.
