Under-age Drinking

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 6 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps the Police Service of Northern Ireland is taking to combat the delivery of alcohol by taxi firms to under-age drinkers; and if he will make a statement. (80118)

The Police Service of Northern Ireland has advised me that there have been a number of specific incidents in several District Command Units. Police in these DCUs have been in contact with local taxi firms/associations advising them of the implications should taxi drivers be found delivering alcohol.
