Response to the Scottish Government’s snapshot Scottish Health Survey

Matt Lambert, CEO of the Portman Group, the social responsibility and regulatory body for alcohol in the UK, has responded to the Scottish Government’s latest snapshot Scottish Health Survey. He commented:

“Scotland has made significant strides in lowering people’s alcohol consumption, and the Scottish Government’s snapshot suggests good news. For over a decade harmful drinking patterns, such as binge drinking, have decreased and people are having more drink free days each week.

“These results echo our own research which shows that the moderate majority of Scots drink sensibly and responsibly.”
