John Holmes & Tim Stockwell: The compelling case for alcohol price reforms

November 16, 2017

Top national and international alcohol harm experts met today at a GAPC pre-event symposium and delivered a compelling case for progressive alcohol price reform that focuses on increasing alcohol price and reducing availability and marketing.

We caught up with two of those experts, Dr John Holmes from the University of Sheffield and Dr Tim Stockwell from the University of Victoria ahead of the event.

They explain why minimum pricing is such as an effective measure to prevent and reduce the harmful use of alcohol and alcohol related-harm.
