    Campaigners want alcohol tax rise

    Taxes on alcohol should be increased and advertising restrictions should be tightened, according to a new group of 24 leading health organisations.
    The Health Alcohol Alliance says 13 children are admitted to hospital every day as a result of Britain's growing alcohol misuse.

    It wants TV adverts for alcohol banned before 9pm and stronger health warnings to be placed on promotional material.

    Ministers said concerted action was planned to address alcohol problems.

    I'm not going to say "there isn't a problem with underage drinking", but I don't see how raising the tax for everyone is going to help??

    Is it really the young, single people living at home that will have to say "oh well, can't afford to drink any more"?

    I say ban drinking in public places...........like pubs. :giggle:

    I blame the parents:)

    just an excuse for another tax increase.
    %10 on a 2.99 bottle of cidar equates to 30p think that will put teenagers off?
