HC Deb 27 May 1982 vol 24 c381W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Prime Minister what representations she has had on the National Council for Women's proposal for a national alcohol affairs commission; what reply has been made; if any action is being taken; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

I received a letter about this proposal from the chairman of the National Council for Women's working party on alcohol-related matters on 16 April. The letter was widely circulated to right hon. and hon. Members, and my hon. Friend the Member for Hampstead (Mr. Finsberg) the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Security, replied on my behalf on 18 May setting out the Government's views. I have nothing to add to that reply. I am arranging for a copy to be sent to the right hon. Member.
