The Government remains committed to tackling harms caused by alcohol. Our new alcohol strategy will set out targeted action to prevent and reduce harmful drinking, support vulnerable people affected by others’ alcohol misuse and improve the pathways into treatment for people with alcohol dependency.

As we develop measures to include in the strategy, we are consulting widely across government and with a range of stakeholders including the health sector, academics, the voluntary sector and representatives of the alcohol industry and the licensed trade.
