Boozy Britain: Tell us what you think of Government’s new plans for minimum pricing on alcohol

The Government is planning to set a minimum price of 40p per unit of alcohol in an attempt to reduce the growing problem of binge-drinking.

So today we are asking what you think of the measures.

Home Secretary Teresa May today said that some town and city centres are no-go areas because of drunken louts - so are you afraid of visiting your local town at night?

Do you think a minimum price for alcohol will cure the problem of the country's culture of drinking, which costs the UK an estimated �21 billion a year?

The plans have met with opposition from the drinks industry, with some accusing Prime Minister David Cameron of being 'seriously misguided'.
