Abstract: It is increasingly common to include appeal to the 'least restrictive alternative' (LRA) in any set of principles for thinking about public health ethics. For example, it appears in work by Ross Upshur, Larry Gostin, Jim Childress et al. and the Nuffield Council on Bioethics. It is also a frequent element in policy documents such as many of those produced relating to pandemic planning and response. This paper seeks to explore what such a principle might mean and how it is supposed to fit with other proposed principles or values. I argue that there are a number of interpretations as to what it means, but that none of them seem convincing as grounds to support the idea that it ought to be a separate principle. It is, presumably, supposed to demonstrate a strong commitment to the idea of liberty. But it then becomes unclear what its moral status is, and how it fits with other values. Indeed, there are important reasons to be cautious in placing it on any such list. For example, whilst liberty is important, it is quite another to see it as an overarching or presumptive value. We also need to be careful not to double count liberty in various different formulations.
