That this House welcomes the promotion of Alcohol Awareness Week, which is taking place from 15 to 21 November 2021; notes that the theme of the week is alcohol and relationships; further notes that polling this week from Alcohol Change UK found that, since covid-19 restrictions eased in the spring, one in three people has worried about a friend or relative’s drinking; highlights that alcohol can impact on a range of relationships, including between intimate partners and amongst family, friends and colleagues; and recognises the importance of raising awareness of alcohol harm and reducing the stigma that prevents people reaching out for help.
