DUP MINISTER TO BAN BINGE DRINKING PROMOTIONS IN LICENSED PREMISES

DUP Minister Nelson McCausland is banning £20 binge drink promotions

DUP MLA Nelson McCausland has told the Assembly he is banning fixed price promotions of alcohol.

The Social Development Minister said his officials will be targeting those offering “all you can drink for £20”.

The North Belfast politician told the Assembly that 252 people died in Northern Ireland last year because of alcohol misuse, and the Assembly needed to take action.

Mr McCausland told MLAs he had considered taking action to stop bulk purchasing of alcohol, but had decided not to ban the practice at this stage.
