(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order brings into force section 1 of the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012 which makes amendments to the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005. The amendments will introduce further mandatory conditions of premises licences and occasional licences granted under the 2005 Act. The condition is that alcohol must not be sold on these premises at a price below the minimum price. The Scottish Ministers are given a power by the new provisions to specify by order, the minimum price per unit of alcohol and the relevant labelling conditions in accordance with which bottles and other containers of alcohol must be labelled. This Order commences section 1 for the purpose of making that Order.
