With this e-petition, the British Medical Association urges the UK Government to introduce a MUP and show courage in tackling a problem that causes devastation to thousands of families affected by alcoholism and the billions spent by the National Health Service (NHS) every year treating disease caused by alcohol misuse.

Recent major health reports show that Britain faces an enormous burden from alcohol. With death rates from liver disease rising by 65% over the past 20 years, Westminster cannot afford to do nothing.

The UK Government made a clear commitment to introduce a MUP for alcohol in its alcohol strategy published in March 2012.

This e-petition is open to British citizens or British residents – please sign it and promote it among your organisations and networks.
