HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 c292W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, in view of the increasing incidence of alcoholism in industry, if he is satisfied that school children are instructed adequately as to the perils involved; what steps he plans to take to ensure that the recommendation of the Royal Commission on Licensing, 1932, is carried out; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Denis Howell

This matter is fully covered in the Department's Handbook of Health Education published in 1968, pages 138 and 139. This is available to all local education authorities to assist them in carrying out their responsibilities, and follows closely the views expressed by the Royal Commission on Licensing. Curricula questions are not the responsibility of my right hon. Friend.
