  • Health impact of chronic alcohol misuse is significant and greater emphasis needs to be placed on addressing that impact.
  • Government’s Alcohol Strategy needs some clearer objectives to provide a framework for both policy judgements and accountability.

A spokesperson for The Salvation Army said:

‘The Salvation Army warmly welcomes the Alcohol Strategy and the range of measures it proposes to tackle harmful and hazardous drinking, including a minimum price for each unit of alcohol sold. Every day we see the consequences of excess alcohol consumption on the physical and mental health, careers, relationships and family lives of those we help. Many with alcohol problems have often exhausted the kindness of family and friends, and have lost contact with their own children.'
