Estonian Health Minister proposes curb on alcohol advertising and Happy Hour ban

Estonia’s Minister of Health and Labour, Jevgeni Ossinovski, has decided to substantially curb alcohol advertising and is seeking opinions on a bill that would ban audio and video alcohol commercials, allowing only a static image to be shown.

The bill would also call for the restriction of “happy hour” in establishments where alcohol is served.

“We know from statistics and research that consumption of alcohol can be reduced by raising the price and restricting advertising and accessibility,” said Ossinovski.
