WSTA comment on Science and Technology Select Committee Alcohol Guidelines Report


Monday 9 January 2012


Commenting on the publication of the Science and Technology Committee Report into sensible drinking guidelines, WSTA spokesman Gavin Partington said: 

"People want simple, consistent advice on how to drink responsibly.  We welcome the recognition by the Committee of the important role the alcohol industry has to play in communicating sensible drinking messages. 

Through our commitment to the Responsibility Deal, the vast majority of alcohol labels on UK shelves will contain responsible drinking guidelines by 2013, supported by point-of-sale information in both the on-and-off trades."
