HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c135W
Mr. Small

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he intends to take in the provision of centres, arising from the recent report of the Scottish health education unit, concerning alcoholism, with particular reference to teenage addicts.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Treatment facilities for alcoholism are provided by hospital authorities, who I am sure will develop them as the need arises and so far as other urgent needs permit. As to young people, the main need is for education; the Scottish Health Education Unit is conducting a campaign to educate the public in the problems of alcoholism.
