Commons Health Committee published a report on alcohol strategy today (19 July). It found:
 

  • 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.
