Editorial – April 2016

Welcome to the April 2016 edition of Alcohol Alert, the Institute of Alcohol Studies newsletter, covering the latest updates on UK alcohol policy matters.

In this issue, a University of Sheffield study finds that heavy drinking at home is increasingly common among Brits, while health experts predict a rise in deaths resulting from cuts in alcohol duty in recent years. Other articles include: 9 out of 10 people fail to link alcohol with cancer, as HMRC reforms aim to minimise duty fraud, and Emergency service leaders call for a lower drink-drive limit as House of Lords peers pass drink-driving bill through report stage.
