Action needed on alcohol sales

23rd November 2007

The prime minister has said that a "co-ordinated" effort is required to stamp out the sales of alcoholic beverages to under-age drinkers.

Launching a Home Office campaign, Gordon Brown said he would investigate "whether we need to do more voluntarily or in a regulatory way".

The campaign will target 1,500 establishments in 90 areas which sell alcohol to under-age drinkers. An Ofsted survey found that a fifth of 10 to 15-year-olds drank on a regular basis.

Mr Brown said the campaign would examine "whether we can build upon the efforts to deal with some of the problems".
