The price of drinking is set to rise.
The Scottish Government is planning to raise the minimum price of a unit of alcohol from the end of September – pushing the price of a bottle of Vodka or Whisky up from around £13 to around £17.
A half-litre can of 4% lager would cost at least £1.30.
But, the extra money raised doesn’t go to the government– it is kept by the shops who sell the drinks.
Those on the frontline of addiction services say that should change.
