That this House reaffirms its support for the Alcohol Charter, which was launched on 16 October 2018 by the Drugs, Alcohol and Justice Cross-Party Parliamentary Group and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Alcohol Harm; notes that the charter is now supported by 35 organisations; further notes with regret that there have been more than 10,000 alcohol-specific deaths in the UK since the Government first promised to introduce an alcohol strategy; believes that the strategy should fully endorse the main recommendations of the charter; and calls on the Government to publish and implement its new alcohol strategy without further delay and consequential cost to human life.
