Cheap drink 'exploits vulnerable', says Mark Drakeford

The drinks industry sometimes exploits vulnerable people by selling alcohol too cheaply, according to Health Minister Mark Drakeford.

Opponents in the industry say there are other less disruptive ways to take action.

Plans for minimum pricing have now been referred to the European Court of Justice.
