Consumption controversies: alcohol policies in the UK

UCL input to RGS-IBG Report launched at House of Commons

Consumption controversies: alcohol policies in the UK

Dr James Kneale is one of the authors of a Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) report on alcohol launched at the House of Commons on 8th December 2010.

Consumption controversies: alcohol policies in the UK emerged out of an RGS-IBG Environment and Society Forum meeting in February. The launch was chaired by Kevin Barron MP, Chair of the Commons Health Select Committee, 2005-10. The Committee’s First Report on Alcohol, published in January, was informed by James' evidence (See Related News item below).

One of the presentations at the launch was given by Dr Nicola Shelton, a health geographer in UCL's Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. In relation to future alcohol research, she referred to the work of two current PhD students, now working with her and James:

  • Linda Ng, supported by a UCL Impact Studentship, part-funded by the Alcohol Education and Research Council
  • Sadie Boniface, supported by a Medical Research Council Studentship.
