James Kneale's evidence quoted by House of Commons Health Committee in its First Report on Alcohol

The History and Geography of Drinking in Britain

Dr James Kneale's evidence to the House of Commons Health Committee has been quoted in its First Report on Alcohol, published on 8 January. The report is strongly critical of recent attempts to manage the harmful effects of alcohol and recommends minimum prices for alcoholic drinks. The Committee consulted James and a number of other witnesses on the history of drinking, noting that current consumption levels are much higher than they were for much of the twentieth century. The Report also quotes James's evidence about the importance of geographical variations in drinking consumption and habits.
