The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee of the National Assembly for Wales, is undertaking an inquiry into the general principles of the Public Health (Minimum Price for Alcohol) (Wales) Bill.

The committee is consulting on the Bill and welcomes evidence on the terms of reference and the extent to which the Bill will contribute to improving and protecting the health and well-being of the population of Wales.

Terms of reference

To consider—

  • the general principles of the Public Health (Minimum Price for Alcohol) (Wales) Bill and the extent to which it will contribute to improving and protecting the health and well-being of the population of Wales, by providing for a minimum price for the sale and supply of alcohol in Wales and making it an offence for alcohol to be sold or supplied below that price.
  • any potential barriers to the implementation of the provisions and whether the Bill takes account of them;
  • whether there are any unintended consequences arising from the Bill;
  • the financial implications of the Bill (as set out in Part 2 of the Explanatory Memorandum);
  • the appropriateness of the powers in the Bill for Welsh Ministers to make subordinate legislation (as set out in Chapter 5 of Part 1 of the Explanatory Memorandum).
