Let's take the Alcohol Law Quiz to see what we already know!
Why do we need to learn about Alcohol?
- In 2010 there were 8,790 alcohol-related deaths in the UK, 126 more than in 2009 (8,664)
- There are more alcohol-related deaths in males than in females, with 67 per cent of all alcohol-related deaths in the UK in 2010 being male.
- Alcohol-related death rates were highest for those aged 55-74 and lowest for those aged under 35 over the last ten years.
- Alcohol-related death rates varied between the regions of England and tended to be highest in the North and lowest in the East of England over the last ten years
What does alcohol do to us?
It is against the Law:
- to be drunk in charge of a child under seven in a public place or on licensed premises
- to sell alcohol to someone under 18, anywhere
- for an adult to buy or attempt to buy alcohol on behalf of someone under 18
- for someone under 18 to buy alcohol, attempt to buy alcohol or to be sold alcohol in any circumstances (unless acting at the request of the police or a weights and measures inspector)
- for someone under 18 to drink alcohol in licensed premises, with one exception - 16 and 17 year olds accompanied by an adult can drink but not buy beer, wine and cider with a table meal
- for an adult to buy alcohol for a person under 18 for consumption on licensed premises, except as above
So why do people drink it?
