Scots plan to stop cheap alcohol
The Scottish Government said it planned to ban discount deals
Measures to tackle alcohol abuse by stopping cut-price offers have been outlined by the Scottish Government.
It has proposed a range of measures including the radical step of a minimum price per unit. It would be the first country in Europe to take the step.
The minority government said it also plans to ban discount deals on alcohol.
SNP ministers decided against raising the off-sales age limit to 21 - but will create powers to allow such curbs to be imposed on a local basis.
Local chief constables will also be able to request such a move.
Other measures include restricting the display and marketing of drink to specific areas within off-sales premises. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/7917824.stm
