Motion text

That this House expresses concern that the number of binge drinkers in the UK is now over 5.9 million and around 20,000 deaths are linked annually to alcohol misuse; notes Government guidelines that males should not drink more than 21 units a week and females more than 14 units; further notes that the strength and variety of alcoholic drinks available can prevent drinkers from easily calculating the number of units consumed; and encourages breweries and alcohol manufacturers to introduce a standardised labelling system on bottles and cans of alcohol which clearly indicate the total number of units the drink contains and if appropriate the number of units per serving.
