Professor Julian le Grand, the chairman of Health England, said customers should be made to make a conscious decision to buy drink by going into a different shop instead of being "lured" into buying alcohol during their weekly grocery shop.
He said alcohol had become "like adult candy", with customers seduced into buying cut-price drink on their way around the supermarket in the same way that sweets used to be placed near tills.
As for price, the increase would have to be rather dramatic to affect consumer behavior.
(A ban on booze sales at petrol/gas stations makes sense, though, if you think about it)
