Nelson McCausland Confirms All You Can Drink Ban

03 December 2012

The Social Development Minister Nelson McCausland has confirmed he is banning fixed price promotions of alcohol.

The minister 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.
