Terms of reference

To consider—

  • the general principles of the Public Health (Minimum Price for Alcohol) (Wales) Bill and the extent to which it will contribute to improving and protecting the health and well-being of the population of Wales, by providing for a minimum price for the sale and supply of alcohol in Wales and making it an offence for alcohol to be sold or supplied below that price.
  • any potential barriers to the implementation of the provisions and whether the Bill takes account of them;
  • whether there are any unintended consequences arising from the Bill;
  • the financial implications of the Bill (as set out in Part 2 of the Explanatory Memorandum);
  • the appropriateness of the powers in the Bill for Welsh Ministers to make subordinate legislation (as set out in Chapter 5 of Part 1 of the Explanatory Memorandum).
