Is Labour going to whack up alcohol price and the purchase age?

Labour’s policy says:

implementing the recommendations from the Law Commission Report on

The Law Commission recommended

  • Increasing the purchase age to 20
  • A 50% increase in the excise tax on alcohol

So one can only presume that Labour is committed to moving the purchase age back to 20, and to a 50% tax hike on beer, wine and spirits. I thought this deserved some publicity.
