Methodist Church calls on government to revisit alcohol licensing

Anthea Cox, Coordinating Secretary for Public Life and Social Justice: "Christmas and New Year are a time when many people want to celebrate, and the majority drink sensibly. But the last two weeks have shown that we have a significant problem with binge drinking and this has lead again to trouble for some drinkers and a rise in crime and casualty treatments. We call on the Government to revisit licensing as well as encouraging initiatives that support people in responsible drinking and seeking alternatives to alcohol."

The Methodist Church ran a successful competition in 2004 to find the recipe for Britain's best mocktails - alcohol free cocktails. The best recipes can be found at Mocktails.
