MP Rosie said:
“Alcohol is one of the most challenging public health issues we face. The West Lancashire hospital admissions figures show a very worrying trend. At my next meeting with NHS Central Lancashire I will be discussing action the PCT can be taking to combat alcohol misuse."
In December 2008 the Government announced a new code of practice that would restrict irresponsible promotions that encourage excessive drinking, and encourage sensible and responsible drinking.
I have worked with local supermarkets to ensure they do not sell alcohol to under-age drinkers and do their best to stop adults buying drink for local young people.
