Die stap volg op die nuwe regulasie van die Verenigde Koninkryk met die hoop dat dit drank sal beperk

Dit lyk asof Britte nie die enigste sal wees wat hoër drankpryse in die gesig staar nie. Nou is Skotland besig om dieselfde regulasie te oorweeg om die minimum prys van alkohol te verhoog, waaroor volgende week in die parlement gestem sal word.

Onder die nuwe uitspraak kos alkohol 50 pennies, of ongeveer $ 0,81 VS, per eenheid. Gesondheidsekretaris Nicola Sturgeon het in 'n nuusverklaring gesê dat die nuwe uitspraak 'n dodelike en duur drinkgewoonte sal bekamp. Sy het gesê: 'Goedkoop alkohol het 'n prys, en dit is nou die tyd om die tol wat Skotland se ongesonde verhouding met alkohol op ons samelewing eis, aan te pak ... Namate die bekostigbaarheid toegeneem het, het alkoholverwante hospitaalopnames vervierdubbel, en dit is skokkend dat die helfte van ons gevangenes nou sê dat hulle dronk was toe hulle die oortreding begaan het. Dit is tyd dat dit ophou. "

'N Studie wat deur die Universiteit van Sheffield gedoen is, het bevind dat die voorgestelde uitspraak die alkoholverwante sterftes en opnames in die hospitaal dramaties sal verminder. Nie net dit nie, maar dit sal 3,500 misdade verminder - in totaal 'n "waarde van skadevermindering teen ongeveer £ 64 miljoen."

Die VK oorweeg ook 'n soortgelyke uitspraak dit sal die minimum prys vir alkohol tot 40 sent verhoog. Teenstanders van albei uitsprake voer egter aan dat dit die laer klasse seermaak.


Verduideliker: Die minimum eenheidsprys vir alkohol is op pad, maar hoe werk dit presies?

Minister van Gesondheid, Simon Harris, stel 'n vaste prys vir alkohol 'so gou as moontlik' vorentoe nadat data verlede maand oor minimum eenheidspryse in Skotland bekend gemaak is.

Resultate het getoon dat die alkoholverbruik in Skotland tot die laagste vlak gedaal het sedert die negentigerjare toe rekords begin het nadat minimum eenheidspryse verlede jaar ingebring is.

Maar wat is die minimum eenheidsprys presies en wat beteken dit vir die Ierse alkoholpryse as dit begin word?

Wat is die minimum eenheidsprys?

Minimum eenheidspryse is 'n vaste koste waaronder alkohol nie verkoop kan word nie. Dit is 'n gedeelte van die Wet op Openbare Gesondheid (Alkohol) 2018 wat nog nie begin is nie.

Die wet bepaal dat die goedkoopste prys vir 'n gram alkohol 10 sent is. 'N Standaarddrankie bevat 10 gram alkohol, wat beteken dat die laagste prys vir een standaarddrankie nou € 1 is.

Dit klink miskien goedkoop, maar die meeste drankies is teen die prys van kleinhandelaars en kroeë/klubs, so dit sal veral baie goedkoop drankies met 'n sterk alkoholinhoud beïnvloed.

Waarom word dit nou bespreek?

Die Wet op Openbare Gesondheid (Alkohol) is in Oktober verlede jaar ingedien met 'n tydslyn wat uiteengesit is vir wanneer verskillende afdelings oor die volgende paar jaar sou begin.

Die wet is deur die meeste partye ondersteun en is deur die Dáil en Seanad vorentoe gestoot. Die Independent Alliance en sommige lobbyiste het egter aspekte daarvan gekant sedert 2015 toe die wetsontwerp die eerste keer voorgelê is voordat dit 'n wet in 2018 geword het.

Die afdeling vir minimum pryspryse van die wet word nou bespreek nadat data in Junie oor die minimum eenheidspryse in Skotland gepubliseer is.

Gegewens het getoon dat alkoholverbruik tot die laagste vlak gedaal het sedert rekords in die negentigerjare begin het nadat minimum pryse verlede jaar ingebring is.

Die minister van gesondheid, Simon Harris, is van voorneme om 'n hersiene regeringsbesluit aan te vra om die minimum prys so gou as moontlik hier te laat begin, volgens 'n woordvoerder van die departement van gesondheid.

Harris vertel TheJournal.ie in 2017: 'In terme van wanneer dit sal begin? Ek sal dit dan oorweeg, ons sal moet sien hoe die situasie in die noorde is, maar ons sal dit ook nie vir ewig ophou nie. ”

Sal mense dan nie net na Noord -Ierland reis om goedkoper alkohol te kry nie?

Dit is die rede waarom die oorspronklike regeringsbesluit in 2013, waarin die opstel van 'n wetsontwerp goedgekeur word, spesifiseer dat die minister van gesondheid in die Republiek en die Noorde saamstem om gelyktydig op te tree oor minimum eenheidspryse om negatiewe gevolge vir handel oor die grens te vermy.

Minister Harris probeer egter hierdie ooreenkoms wysig om die minimum prys van eenhede net in die Republiek te bevorder.

'N Woordvoerder van die departement van gesondheid het gesê TheJournal.ie op 5 Julie: "Die minister van gesondheid wil die minimum eenheidspryse van alkoholprodukte implementeer om die beduidende gesondheidskade en finansiële koste van die manier waarop alkohol in Ierland verbruik word, so gou as moontlik te verminder."

Volgens die woordvoerder sluit die gevolge van sterftes wat aan alkohol toegeskryf word, lewersiekte, borskanker en ander kwessies in.

Wat gebeur in Skotland?

In 2018 het Skotland die eerste land in die EU geword wat minimum eenheidspryse ingebring het. Data wat in Junie gerapporteer is, toon dat die verbruiksvlakke van alkohol tot die laagste vlak gedaal het sedert rekords in die vroeë 1990's begin het.

Alkoholpryse is egter goedkoper in Skotland as in Ierland, selfs teen die minimum eenheidsprys. Die minimum prys op die oomblik in Skotland vir 'n bottel whisky van 700 ml is £ 14 (€ 15,60).

'N 700 ml bottel vodka kan nie goedkoper wees as £ 13,13 (€ 14,63).

Sal dit iemand raak wat net af en toe drink?

Minister Finian McGrath, wat ingryp vir Simon Harris, het in die Dáil gesê dat "die minimum prys min sal maak vir diegene wat slegs lae of matige hoeveelhede alkohol drink".

Volgens die departement van gesondheid word alkoholpryse in kroeë, klubs en restaurante nie deur die minimum prys beïnvloed nie. Pinten en kroeë drankies bly almal teen dieselfde prys.

Die HSE-laerisiko-riglyne van askaboutalcohol.ie vir vroue is 11 standaarddrankies in die loop van 'n week, met ten minste twee alkoholvrye dae.

Vir mans is dit 17 standaard drankies wat gedurende die week versprei is met ten minste twee alkoholvrye dae.

Die bewysbasis vir die bekendstelling van minimum eenheidspryse in Ierland is 'n analise wat deur die Universiteit van Sheffield in Engeland uitgevoer is, wat dieselfde drinkrisiko's met 'n lae risiko het.

Jou bydraes sal ons help om die verhale wat vir u belangrik is, voort te bring

Watter drankies kos meer as dit ingebring word?

Die belangrikste drankies wat in die prys sal styg, is goedkoop drankies met 'n hoë alkoholinhoud, soos supermarkte van vodka en gin.

Tesco se Nikita Imperial Vodka 700ml styg van € 12,99 tot € 20,71, 'n styging van € 7,72.

Tesco's Windsor Castle London Dry Gin 700ml styg met € 4,72. Linden Village Cider sal ook 'n toename van € 2,89, styg van € 5 tot € 7,89.

'N Gemiddelde bottel wyn kan nie meer vir minder as € 7,50 verkoop word nie.

Goedkoper bier soos Dutch Gold sal met 45c per blikkie in 'n 8 -pak toeneem. Tesco -pils sal 'n toename van 6c per blikkie kry. Meer bekende handelsmerke soos Guinness, Heineken en Bulmers sal geen prysverandering sien nie.

Wat is nog meer in die wet?

Die wet bevat ook nuwe beperkings op die advertering en verkoop van alkoholprodukte. 23 artikels van die wet is in November 2018 deur Simon Harris onderteken om oor drie jaar in werking te tree.

Bepalings om gesondheidswaarskuwings, alkoholinhoud en energie -inhoud van alkoholprodukte op hul houers op te neem. Beperkings sal ingebring word oor advertensies en borgskap van alkoholprodukte.

Alkoholadvertensies op voertuie of vervoerstasies en binne 200 m van 'n skool, kleuterskool of speelgrond van die plaaslike owerheid sal nie toegelaat word nie.

Filmreklame is verbied, behalwe in films met 'n 18 -sertifikaat of in 'n gelisensieerde perseel in 'n bioskoop. Kindersklere wat alkohol bevorder, word verbied.

Sal dit die alkoholverbruik in Ierland verminder?

Dit is in elk geval die hoop wat gebaseer is op wêreldwye bewyse. Dit is egter slegs een deel van 'n hele Wet van ander inisiatiewe.

Die doel van die hele wet is om alkoholverbruik teen 2020 tot die OESO-gemiddelde van 9,1 liter suiwer alkohol per persoon per jaar te verminder, skade te verminder, jongmense te laat drink en alkoholverwante skade te verminder deur die aanbod en prys te reguleer van alkohol.

Eunan McKinney van Alcohol Action Ireland het gesê dat minimum eenheidspryse op sigself 'n beperkte impak op verbruiksvlakke sal hê.

"Die wetsontwerp en die wet is 'n baie progressiewe wetgewing, maar dit is slegs progressief as dit geïmplementeer word, en op die oomblik sien ons slegs vier of vyf klein aspekte van die wet wat geïmplementeer gaan word," het McKinney gesê.

Watter drankies sal meer kos as dit ingebring word?

Die belangrikste drankies wat in prys sal styg, is goedkoop drankies met 'n hoë alkoholinhoud, soos supermarkte van vodka en gin.

Tesco se Nikita Imperial Vodka 700ml styg van € 12,99 tot € 20,71, 'n styging van € 7,72.

Tesco's Windsor Castle London Dry Gin 700ml styg met € 4,72. Linden Village Cider sal ook 'n toename van € 2,89, styg van € 5 tot € 7,89.

'N Gemiddelde bottel wyn kan nie meer vir minder as € 7,50 verkoop word nie.

Goedkoper bier soos Dutch Gold sal met 45c per blikkie in 'n 8 -pak toeneem. Tesco -pils sal 'n toename van 6c per blikkie kry. Meer bekende handelsmerke soos Guinness, Heineken en Bulmers sal geen prysverandering sien nie.

Wat is nog meer in die wet?

Die wet bevat ook nuwe beperkings op die advertering en verkoop van alkoholprodukte. 23 artikels van die wet is in November 2018 deur Simon Harris onderteken om oor drie jaar in werking te tree.

Bepalings om gesondheidswaarskuwings, alkoholinhoud en energie -inhoud van alkoholprodukte op hul houers op te neem. Beperkings sal ingebring word oor advertensies en borgskap van alkoholprodukte.

Alkoholadvertensies op voertuie of vervoerstasies en binne 200 m van 'n skool, kleuterskool of speelgrond van die plaaslike owerheid sal nie toegelaat word nie.

Filmreklame is verbied, behalwe in films met 'n 18 -sertifikaat of in 'n gelisensieerde perseel in 'n bioskoop. Kindersklere wat alkohol bevorder, word verbied.

Sal dit die alkoholverbruik in Ierland verminder?

Dit is in elk geval die hoop wat gebaseer is op wêreldwye bewyse. Dit is egter slegs een deel van 'n hele Wet van ander inisiatiewe.

Die doel van die hele wet is om alkoholverbruik teen die OESO-gemiddelde van 9,1 liter suiwer alkohol per persoon per jaar tot 2020 te verminder, skade te verminder, jongmense te laat drink en alkoholverwante skade te verminder deur die aanbod en prys te reguleer van alkohol.

Eunan McKinney van Alcohol Action Ireland het gesê dat minimum eenheidspryse op sigself 'n beperkte impak op verbruiksvlakke sal hê.

"Die wetsontwerp en die wet is 'n baie progressiewe wetgewing, maar dit is slegs progressief as dit geïmplementeer word, en op die oomblik sien ons slegs vier of vyf klein aspekte van die wet wat geïmplementeer gaan word," het McKinney gesê.


Verduideliker: Die minimum eenheidsprys vir alkohol is op pad, maar hoe werk dit presies?

Minister van Gesondheid, Simon Harris, stel 'n vaste prys vir alkohol 'so gou as moontlik' vorentoe nadat data verlede maand oor minimum eenheidspryse in Skotland bekend gemaak is.

Resultate het getoon dat die alkoholverbruik in Skotland tot die laagste vlak gedaal het sedert die negentigerjare toe rekords begin het nadat minimum eenheidspryse verlede jaar ingebring is.

Maar wat is die minimum eenheidsprys presies en wat sal dit beteken vir die Ierse alkoholpryse as dit begin word?

Wat is die minimum eenheidsprys?

Minimum eenheidsprys is 'n vaste koste waaronder alkohol nie verkoop kan word nie. Dit is 'n gedeelte van die Wet op Openbare Gesondheid (Alkohol) 2018 wat nog nie begin is nie.

Die wet bepaal dat die goedkoopste prys vir 'n gram alkohol 10 sent is. 'N Standaarddrankie bevat 10 gram alkohol, wat beteken dat die laagste prys vir een standaarddrankie nou € 1 is.

Dit klink dalk goedkoop, maar die meeste drankies word in kleinhandelaars en kroeë/klubs se prys aangepas, en dit sal veral baie goedkoop drankies met 'n sterk alkoholinhoud beïnvloed.

Waarom word dit nou bespreek?

Die Wet op Openbare Gesondheid (Alkohol) is in Oktober verlede jaar ingedien met 'n tydslyn wat uiteengesit is vir wanneer verskillende afdelings oor die volgende paar jaar sou begin.

Die wet is deur die meeste partye ondersteun en is deur die Dáil en Seanad vorentoe gestoot. Die Independent Alliance en sommige lobbyiste het egter aspekte daarvan gekant sedert 2015 toe die wetsontwerp die eerste keer voorgelê is voordat dit 'n wet in 2018 geword het.

The minimum unit pricing section of the Act is being discussed now after data was published in June about minimum unit pricing in Scotland.

Data showed that alcohol consumption had dropped to the lowest level since records began in the 1990s after minimum pricing was brought in last year.

The Minister for Health Simon Harris is intending to seek a revised government decision to allow minimum pricing to commence here as soon as possible, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Health.

Harris told TheJournal.ie in 2017: “In terms of when it will commence? I will consider it then, we will have to see what the situation is like in the North but we won’t be holding off on this forever either.”

Won’t people just travel to Northern Ireland to get cheaper alcohol then?

They could, which is why the original government decision in 2013 approving the drafting of a Bill specified that the Minister for Health in the Republic and the North were in agreement to act simultaneously on minimum unit pricing to avoid negative impacts on trade across the border.

However, Minister Harris is trying to amend this agreement to push forward minimum unit pricing just in the Republic.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health told TheJournal.ie on 5 July: “The Minister for Health wishes to implement the minimum unit pricing of alcohol products in order to reduce as soon as possible the significant health harms and financial costs of the way alcohol is consumed in Ireland.”

These harms and costs include cases of alcohol-attributed deaths, liver disease, breast cancer and other issues, according to the spokesperson.

What’s happening in Scotland?

In 2018, Scotland became the first country in the EU to bring in minimum unit pricing. Data reported in June showed that consumption levels of alcohol had dropped to the lowest level since records began in the early 1990s.

However, alcohol prices are cheaper in Scotland than in Ireland, even at the minimum unit price. The minimum price at the moment in Scotland for a 700ml bottle of whiskey is £14 (€15.60).

A 700ml bottle of vodka can’t be cheaper than £13.13 (€14.63).

Will this affect someone who only drinks every now and then?

Minister Finian McGrath, stepping in for Simon Harris, said in the Dáil that “the minimum price will make little difference to those who only drink low or moderate volumes of alcohol”.

Alcoholic drink prices in pubs, clubs and restaurants won’t be affected by minimum pricing, according to the Department of Health. Pints and pub measures of spirits will all remain at the same price.

The HSE low-risk guidelines from askaboutalcohol.ie for women are 11 standard drinks over the course of a week, with at least two alcohol-free days.

For men, it is 17 standard drinks spread over the week with at least two alcohol-free days.

The evidence base for introducing minimum unit pricing in Ireland is analysis carried out by the University of Sheffield in England, which has the same low-risk drinking levels.

Which drinks will cost more when it’s brought in?

The main drinks that will increase in price are cheap drinks with a high alcohol content such as supermarket own-brands of vodka and gin.

Tesco’s Nikita Imperial Vodka 700ml will increase from €12.99 to €20.71, a rise of €7.72 This will make it the same price as the retail cost of Smirnoff Vodka.

Tesco’s Windsor Castle London Dry Gin 700ml will rise by €4.72. Linden Village Cider will also see an increase of €2.89, rising from €5 to €7.89.

An average bottle of wine can no longer be sold for less than €7.50.

Cheaper beers such as Dutch Gold will increase by 45c per can in an 8 pack. Tesco lager will see an increase of 6c per can. More known brands like Guinness, Heineken and Bulmers will see no price change.

What else is in the Act?

The Act also includes new restrictions on advertising and selling alcohol products. 23 sections of the Act were signed into law in November 2018 by Simon Harris to take effect over three years.

Provisions on including health warnings, alcohol contents and energy contents of alcohol products on their containers. Restrictions will be brought in about advertising and sponsorship of alcohol products.

Alcohol advertising on vehicles or transport stations and within 200m of a school, creche or local authority playground will not be allowed.

Cinema advertising will be prohibited except in films with an 18 cert or in a licensed premises in a cinema. Kid’s clothes that promote alcohol will be banned.

Will this reduce alcohol consumption rates in Ireland?

That is the hope anyways based on global evidence. However, it is only one section of a whole Act of other initiatives.

The objective of the entire Act is to reduce alcohol consumption to the OECD average of 9.1 litres of pure alcohol per person per year by 2020, reduce harm, delay young people drinking alcohol too early and minimise alcohol-related harm by regulating the supply and price of alcohol.

Eunan McKinney from Alcohol Action Ireland said that minimum unit pricing on its own would have a limited impact on consumption levels.

“The Bill and the Act is a very progressive piece of legislation, but it’s only progressive if it’s implemented and at the moment we only have sight of four or five minor aspects of the Act that are going to be implemented,” said McKinney.

What is minimum unit pricing?

Minimum unit pricing is a set cost below which alcohol can’t be sold. It is a section of the Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018 that has not yet been commenced.

The Act states that the cheapest price for a gram of alcohol is 10 cent. A standard drink has 10 grams of alcohol in it, meaning the lowest price for one standard drink is now €1.

This might sound cheap, but most drinks are marked up in price for retailers and pubs/clubs so it will mainly affect very cheap drinks with strong alcohol content.

Alcoholic drink prices in pubs, clubs and restaurants won’t be affected by minimum pricing, according to the Department of Health. Pints and pub measures of spirits will all remain at the same price.

The HSE low-risk guidelines from askaboutalcohol.ie for women are 11 standard drinks over the course of a week, with at least two alcohol-free days.

For men, it is 17 standard drinks spread over the week with at least two alcohol-free days.

The evidence base for introducing minimum unit pricing in Ireland is analysis carried out by the University of Sheffield in England, which has the same low-risk drinking levels.

Which drinks will cost more when it’s brought in?

The main drinks that will increase in price are cheap drinks with a high alcohol content such as supermarket own-brands of vodka and gin.

Tesco’s Nikita Imperial Vodka 700ml will increase from €12.99 to €20.71, a rise of €7.72 This will make it the same price as the retail cost of Smirnoff Vodka.

Tesco’s Windsor Castle London Dry Gin 700ml will rise by €4.72. Linden Village Cider will also see an increase of €2.89, rising from €5 to €7.89.

An average bottle of wine can no longer be sold for less than €7.50.

Cheaper beers such as Dutch Gold will increase by 45c per can in an 8 pack. Tesco lager will see an increase of 6c per can. More known brands like Guinness, Heineken and Bulmers will see no price change.

What else is in the Act?

The Act also includes new restrictions on advertising and selling alcohol products. 23 sections of the Act were signed into law in November 2018 by Simon Harris to take effect over three years.

Provisions on including health warnings, alcohol contents and energy contents of alcohol products on their containers. Restrictions will be brought in about advertising and sponsorship of alcohol products.

Alcohol advertising on vehicles or transport stations and within 200m of a school, creche or local authority playground will not be allowed.

Cinema advertising will be prohibited except in films with an 18 cert or in a licensed premises in a cinema. Kid’s clothes that promote alcohol will be banned.

Will this reduce alcohol consumption rates in Ireland?

That is the hope anyways based on global evidence. However, it is only one section of a whole Act of other initiatives.

The objective of the entire Act is to reduce alcohol consumption to the OECD average of 9.1 litres of pure alcohol per person per year by 2020, reduce harm, delay young people drinking alcohol too early and minimise alcohol-related harm by regulating the supply and price of alcohol.

Eunan McKinney from Alcohol Action Ireland said that minimum unit pricing on its own would have a limited impact on consumption levels.

“The Bill and the Act is a very progressive piece of legislation, but it’s only progressive if it’s implemented and at the moment we only have sight of four or five minor aspects of the Act that are going to be implemented,” said McKinney.


Explainer: Minimum unit pricing for alcohol is on the way, but how exactly does it work?

A SET PRICE for alcohol is being pushed forward by Minister for Health Simon Harris “as soon as possible” after data was released last month about minimum unit pricing in Scotland.

Results showed that alcohol consumption in Scotland has dropped to its lowest levels since the 1990s when records began after minimum unit pricing was brought in last year.

But what exactly is minimum unit pricing and what will it mean for Irish alcohol prices if commenced?

What is minimum unit pricing?

Minimum unit pricing is a set cost below which alcohol can’t be sold. It is a section of the Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018 that has not yet been commenced.

The Act states that the cheapest price for a gram of alcohol is 10 cent. A standard drink has 10 grams of alcohol in it, meaning the lowest price for one standard drink is now €1.

This might sound cheap, but most drinks are marked up in price for retailers and pubs/clubs so it will mainly affect very cheap drinks with strong alcohol content.

Why is it being discussed now?

The Public Health (Alcohol) Act was brought in last October with a timeline set out for when different sections would commence over the next few years.

The Act was supported by most parties and was pushed forward through the Dáil and Seanad. However, aspects of it were opposed by the Independent Alliance and some lobbyists since 2015 when the Bill was first brought forward before becoming an Act in 2018.

The minimum unit pricing section of the Act is being discussed now after data was published in June about minimum unit pricing in Scotland.

Data showed that alcohol consumption had dropped to the lowest level since records began in the 1990s after minimum pricing was brought in last year.

The Minister for Health Simon Harris is intending to seek a revised government decision to allow minimum pricing to commence here as soon as possible, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Health.

Harris told TheJournal.ie in 2017: “In terms of when it will commence? I will consider it then, we will have to see what the situation is like in the North but we won’t be holding off on this forever either.”

Won’t people just travel to Northern Ireland to get cheaper alcohol then?

They could, which is why the original government decision in 2013 approving the drafting of a Bill specified that the Minister for Health in the Republic and the North were in agreement to act simultaneously on minimum unit pricing to avoid negative impacts on trade across the border.

However, Minister Harris is trying to amend this agreement to push forward minimum unit pricing just in the Republic.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health told TheJournal.ie on 5 July: “The Minister for Health wishes to implement the minimum unit pricing of alcohol products in order to reduce as soon as possible the significant health harms and financial costs of the way alcohol is consumed in Ireland.”

These harms and costs include cases of alcohol-attributed deaths, liver disease, breast cancer and other issues, according to the spokesperson.

What’s happening in Scotland?

In 2018, Scotland became the first country in the EU to bring in minimum unit pricing. Data reported in June showed that consumption levels of alcohol had dropped to the lowest level since records began in the early 1990s.

However, alcohol prices are cheaper in Scotland than in Ireland, even at the minimum unit price. The minimum price at the moment in Scotland for a 700ml bottle of whiskey is £14 (€15.60).

A 700ml bottle of vodka can’t be cheaper than £13.13 (€14.63).

Will this affect someone who only drinks every now and then?

Minister Finian McGrath, stepping in for Simon Harris, said in the Dáil that “the minimum price will make little difference to those who only drink low or moderate volumes of alcohol”.

Alcoholic drink prices in pubs, clubs and restaurants won’t be affected by minimum pricing, according to the Department of Health. Pints and pub measures of spirits will all remain at the same price.
