Aims: In order to examine the potential impact of an increase in the minimum price per unit of alcohol to 50 pence ($0.78), we examined drinking patterns and household incomes of people who purchase alcohol in England at above and below this price.
Methods: Cross-sectional survey of 515 members of the public in seven towns and cities in the south of England.

Those buying alcohol at Conclusions: These data suggest that an increase in the minimum price of alcohol to 50 pence price per unit is only likely to disproportionately affect people on low incomes if their alcohol consumption is excessive.
