According to the latest data, a minuscule 4 per cent of the English population consumes almost one third of all the alcohol sold in England.

The data follows a debate currently going on in the British parliament about a 50 pence (Aus .87c) minimum unit price on alcohol.

It was recently revealed that 4.4 per cent of the English population consumed just under a third of the alcohol consumed in the nation.

Just 2 million people are drinking more than 30 per cent of the alcohol being consumed, and most are drinking the very cheap, high strength alcohol.
