Annex 6: Relationship between responses

This section provides a summary of how those that agreed and disagreed with mandatory restrictions then responded to other quantitative questions.

Pro-restriction respondents

Overall those agreeing with mandatory restrictions tended to agree with the specific approaches proposed if it was one that proposed a restriction. Responses were much more split, with the overall level of agreement much lower, in regard to the types of promotion not to be included (i.e. temporary price reductions and multi-packs), and in relation to the ‘no reasonable alternative’ and ‘close to expiry’ exemptions. 

Anti-restriction respondents

Overall those disagreeing with mandatory restrictions tended to disagree with the specific approaches proposed if it was one that proposed a restriction. Agreement with the ‘no reasonable alternative’ exemption was relatively low – attributable in part to respondents believing organisations should be treated the same and in part due to conflicting answers. More generally anti-restriction respondents tended to agree with exemptions.
