Minimum Prices 2021 Revision Update

Government price controls are situations where the government sets prices for goods and services.

Minimum prices are legally-imposed price floors and are most associated with minimum hourly wage rates in the labour market or guaranteed price support schemes for farmers and other producers. They might also be a legal minimum retail price such as the minimum unit alcohol price introduced into Scotland.
