Dr Phil Tomlinson and Dr Rob Branston from the School of Management are conducting an academic study in the field of alcohol consumption, looking at prospective changes in the UK market.

The study is being led by final-year Business Administration student, Matthew Jones, and is being conducted in order to investigate prospective alcohol buying habits away from pubs, bars and clubs (i.e. places such as off-licences and supermarkets).

This is an important policy issue, as the UK government is currently considering introducing a minimum price for alcohol.

In order to pursue this research, a large scale survey is being conducted and they would like to encourage as many people as possible to complete it. The survey should only take a few minutes to complete.

In order to thank you for your time and co-operation you will be given the opportunity to enter a prize draw, to win £250 and £100 gift cards for
