Revert to the way the law was many years ago and stop the sale of alcohol in supermarkets.

Why is this idea important?

This will focus the trade in alcohol back onto the pubs, which are suffering so badly in this recession and will better enable this valuable aspect of British life to survive.

This will also achieve the objectives of:

– effectively reducing access to alcohol

– and effectively raising the average price of alcohol (as pubs are most unlikely to follow the supermarket practice of selling below market cost, especially with such significant competition removed).

– resulting in less alcohol fuelled trouble

– and reduced NHS costs incurred in treating the results of much alcohol abuse
