Are minimum prices for alcohol the answer to teenage drinking ?

With the increasing scurge of teenage binge drinking an MP who is also a doctor has recently called for an increase in minimum alcohol prices in an attempt to reduce the harm caused by alcohol in this vulnerable age group.

Another study has come out this week showing that some children as young as 12 years of age are already regular drinkers http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-15511018

In the area where I live the drink of choice for teenagers seems to be cheap vodka & cheap wine which are both readily and easily available in most supermarkets.

When alcohol was only available through off licenses and public houses was teenage drinking less of a problem ?

Maybe alcohol is now too readily available to us all. It is so easy to pop a couple of bottles in your trolley when you are doing your grocery shop.

Maybe the teenagers are taking the alcohol from their parents without their knowledge.

Evidence suggest that increasing the prices of alcohol may help to reduce consumption but should we be going further and making alcohol less easily available to teenagers ?

Do we encourage responsible drinking in our youngsters or should we operate a zero tolerance ?

.  Maybe we need to bring back the locked drinks cabinet & the off license! Let us know your thoughts in comments.
