(drinks media wire) - Commenting on the publication today of the Statistics on Alcohol England 2012 report, WSTA Interim Chief Executive Gavin Partington said:
"We welcome today’s launch of a consultation to look at the best way of estimating alcohol-related hospital admissions. It is in everyone’s interest that we have an accurate and consistent picture of the scale of such admissions.
"Whilst the continued rise in alcohol-related deaths is concerning, the long-term downward trend in adults drinking over the recommended limits is positive.
"The decline in underage drinking and the fact that young people are themselves becoming less tolerant of drinking amongst their peers is particularly welcome. It suggests messages about the risks of underage and excessive drinking are getting through."
