Alcohol tax rise?

13th November 2007

A new group of 24 leading health organisations has called for taxes on alcohol to be increased and for advertising restrictions to be tightened up.

The Health Alcohol Alliance says 13 children are admitted to hospital every day as a result of Britain’s growing alcohol misuse and it now wants TV adverts for alcohol banned before 9pm and stronger health warnings to be placed on promotional material. The Government has said that concerted action was planned to address alcohol problems.
