The report, Pubs Quizzed: What Publicans Think About Policy, Public Health and the Changing Trade, released by the Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS) is based on the results of a national survey of pub managers. It found 83% believe supermarket alcohol is too cheap, with almost half (48%) saying competition from shops and supermarkets among their top three biggest concerns. Almost three-quarters (72%) of publicans believe the government should raise taxes on alcohol in supermarkets to tackle the problem, whilst 41% are in favour of MUP versus 22% against.
