Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 27 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government which of the recommendations of the expert group, tasked by it to look at alcohol marketing, will be incorporated within the next phase of Scotland’s alcohol strategy.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 19 July 2017

We are all too aware of the impact of alcohol advertising on young people and believe this could and should be reduced. The Scottish Government welcomes the report from the expert group on alcohol marketing. Its recommendations are wide-ranging and we will consider them carefully as we refresh our Alcohol Strategy this year.
