Clarke welcomes ban on irresponsible drinks promotions
Alliance Newcastle Councillor Patrick Clarke has welcomed the commitment by the Department for Social Development to bring new regulations into place to ban irresponsible drinks promotions.
Speaking to Newry Times, Clarke said:
“I very much welcome the decision by the Department for Social Development to bring forward a ban on irresponsible drinks promotions.”
“I think many people will agree that some pubs and clubs have become very careless and indeed irresponsible with their drinks promotions and this adds to the culture of binge drinking. It often falls to local councils and emergency services to deal with the consequences of irresponsible drinks promotions.”
He added, “Pubs and Clubs have a duty of care to ensure that they are responsible to customers in what they sell and how they sell alcohol.”
