Alcohol Charter

EDM number 1682 in 2017-19, proposed by Mary Glindon on 11/10/2018.

That this House is alarmed that alcohol treatment services have been severely cut while the affordability and availability of alcohol, and alcohol dependency, have increased dramatically; notes that liver disease is now the only major cause of death in the UK which is rising; further notes that in England alone there are an estimated 600,000 alcohol-dependent adults and 200,000 children who live with an alcohol-dependent adult; and calls on the Government to base its new Alcohol Strategy on the Drugs, Alcohol and Justice Cross-Party Group and APPG on Alcohol Harm's Alcohol Charter recommendations to reduce harmful drinking, tackle ubiquitous excessively cheap alcohol and provide adequate support for both dependent and non-dependent drinkers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
