</s>Beoir is Ireland's organisation for beer and cider consumers. It is run on a voluntary basis and is in no way affiliated to the drinks industry. It currently has over 500 subscribing members.
We object strongly to this proposed measure, seeing it as anti-consumer, anti-competitive and unlikely to have any meaningful effect on problem drinking in Ireland.
The Irish Government has failed to show a causal link between minor changes to alcohol laws of this kind and the stated aim of reducing harm and overall consumption. As such this is poor policy and will have a detrimental effect on both businesses and consumers without achieving any tangible or verifiable results.<e>
