Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) Continuation and future pricing: Stage 2: Child Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment

Scottish Government developed a Children's Rights & Wellbeing Impact Assessment to assess the of the continuation and uprating of Minimum Unit Price (MUP) of children and young people living in Scotland.

11. Communicating impact to children and young people

Alcohol is an age-restricted product which means children and young people under the age of 18 are not legally able to purchase alcohol. As such, children and young people are not directly targeted by the policy. Scottish Ministers do not consider continuing MUP, or increasing the price to 65ppu, is likely to have a significant impact on children and young people.

There are no current plans to publish a child-specific CRWIA as alcohol is an age-restricted product.
