Foetal Alcohol Syndrome

EDM number 629 in 2014-15, proposed by Barry Sheerman on 15/12/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Alcoholism, Health education and preventive medicine and Health services.

That this House notes the proven link between alcohol ingested during pregnancy and a wide range of health defects affecting the child upon birth, including brain damage, heart, kidney and liver damage and developmental problems; commends the work of groups such as the FASD Trust and FAS Aware in raising awareness of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome; further notes that there is no clear evidence that points to a minimum safe amount of alcohol to consume during pregnancy; and calls for a holistic public health strategy focused on early intervention and encouraging no alcohol during pregnancy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
