FIGURES showing the stark difference in drinking habits between Scotland and England proves the need for minimum pricing, city doctors have said.

Earlier this week statistics revealed Scots consumed 25 per cent more alcohol than those south of the border.

Dr Brian Keighley, chairman of the British Medical Association in Scotland, said: “It is essential that this parliament supports new legislation to introduce a minimum price for alcohol in Scotland.”
