Alcoholic Drinks: Warnings

Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether she plans to introduce health warnings on alcoholic products. (124792)

The Government are working with the United Kingdom alcohol industry to reach a voluntary agreement to standardise and strengthen unit information that appears on alcoholic drinks labels and to include a standardised sensible drinking message, including information regarding drinking alcohol during pregnancy. I have recently written to the industry with a proposal for the content of standardised unit information and a standarised sensible drinking message and hope to conclude an agreement shortly.
