Scottish justice secretary Kenny MacAskill has reiterated his pledge to clamp down on alcohol promotions in supermarkets and off licences.
The minister, who is putting the finishing touches to a consultation paper expected to recommend banning 'two-for-one' and 'buy one, get one free' offers in Scotland, has also said he would investigate introducing minimum prices for alcohol.
Campaigners have suggested a minimum price of 50p per unit of alcohol. It would mean a value bottle of wine would have to be sold for at least £5, while a 2ltr bottle of White Lightning cider would retail for £7.50.
