Rejected petition Stop the unnecessary extra cost of alcohol in Wales

The Senedd has decided to increase the cost of alcohol in Wales under the guise of reducing drug and alcohol abuse in Wales, and the resulting pressure on the NHS. Yet the extra money charged goes to the vendors i.e. supermarkets, corner shops etc.

More details

None of this money goes to the NHS in Wales who according to the Welsh Government are impacted because of this. I propose the Welsh Government abolishes this additional cost or uses the proceeds to reduce the cost to the NHS. The only people benefiting from the additional charge are the vendors and their shareholders.
