Responding to the plan by the Government to crack down on binge drinking hotspots and give communities more influence over licensing applications, Chris Sorek, Chief Executive of alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware, says: „Alcohol misuse costs society £25 billion a year* and it is imperative our culture’s binge drinking problem is tackled head on. Drink related anti-social behavior causes misery for communities across the country, and the Government is right to take action.

Comment: They cannot change attitudes with awareness programmes. The Government must do much more.
