Commission on Alcohol Harm

13 Jan

Alcohol Health Alliance UK (AHA), which is a group of 50 non-governmental organisations who work in cooperation to promote evidence-based policies to reduce the harm caused by alcohol have announced their support for a new Commission on Alcohol Harm, chaired by Baroness Finlay of Llandaff.

The Commission has been established to:

“examine the current evidence on alcohol harm, recent trends in alcohol harm and the changes needed to reduce the harm caused by alcohol…..[and] the need for a new comprehensive alcohol strategy for England, which takes account of the strategies in place in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and considers UK-wide priorities in areas where policy is not devolved.”

The Commission will hold three oral evidence sessions in early 2020 and has launched a call for written evidence, with submissions welcomed before the deadline of 12.00 noon on 17 February 2020.

The AHA is committed to the policy of minimum unit pricing.
