PM David Cameron "determined" to fight cut price alcohol
Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed he is still determined to fight against deep discounted alcohol - despite claims yesterday that plans for minimum unit pricing are likely to be shelved.

Speaking during Prime Ministers Question Time yesterday in the House of Commons Cameron said: “There is a problem with deeply discounted alcohol in supermarket and other stores and I am determined that we will deal with this.”

David Cameron said that the sale of 20p and 25p cans of lager in supermarkets was not acceptable: “It’s got to change.”

However, he would not be drawn on reports that minimum unit pricing for alcohol would be shelved due to splits within the cabinet.

Tory MP Dr Sarah Wollaston asked the PM for a meeting to consider the evidence base behind minimum pricing of alcohol and the PM agreed.
