Alcoholic Drinks: Misuse

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

The Government is committed to tackling health harms from alcohol and supporting the most vulnerable at risk from alcohol misuse. Action on alcohol abuse continues through commitments in the Prevention Green Paper, the NHS Long Term Plan, funding to support children of alcohol dependent parents, and action to reduce alcohol-related crime. This wide-ranging approach negates the need for a separate stand-alone alcohol strategy.
