ICELAND: Alcohol monopoly bill must wait

A bill proposing the abolition of the State’s monopoly on sales of alcohol will not be dealt with before the Icelandic Parliament (‘Alþingi’) adjourns for summer recess, Iceland Monitor reports.

The bill, which proposes extending the right to sell alcohol to all retail outlets, is a ‘private member’s bill’, as Vil­hjálm­ur Árna­son is not a member of the Cabinet.

The bill will be moved again when Alþingi reconvenes in the autumn.
