2015-16 Session
That this House notes the warning given by Professor Sir Albert Aynsley-Green, President of the British Medical Association (BMA), in his address to the BMA's Annual Conference in June, that women should not drink any alcohol in pregnancy; supports Sir Albert's recommendation that alcoholic drinks containers should be required to include more explicit warnings of the risks to babies, making it clear that there is no safe limit for alcohol consumption in pregnancy; agrees with Sir Albert's comments that Government guidelines are confusing, contradictory and inconsistent; and urges the Government to legislate and make mandatory labels on all drinks containers incorporate wording which warns that alcohol consumed in pregnancy can cause irreversible birth defects.
