Government calls time on drink culture

PUBLISHED March 12, 2004

Proposals to close pubs and clubs that fail to tackle drunkenness and antisocial behaviour are expected to be unveiled in the government's long-awaited national alcohol strategy today.

Drawn up by the Number 10 strategy unit, the national alcohol harm reduction strategy is expected to highlight a number of existing schemes as examples of best practice for pubs and clubs. These include a project in which local pubs unite to share information and ban problem drinkers.
