Mark Hunter is chief executive of Carling brewer Molson Coors (UK) and a director of the Portman Group[1]

. In response to a recent report that criticised alcohol industry marketing practices[2] he said "We think it is a shame that in a week when we should be focused on the positive policy proposals and public debate on key ways to reduce alcohol harm such sensational assertions are being made... Molson Coors (UK) is pleased to see the recent policy proposals are focused on targeting disrespectful, harmful attitudes towards alcohol, without punishing the responsible consumer. (Such as including strengthening age verification and a serious look at minimum pricing to address "loss leader" retailer sales.)[3].
