HC Deb 13 February 1986 vol 91 c519W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the chief constable of the West Midlands police as to the nature of his plans to send plain-clothes officers into public houses and to survey discotheques, off-licences and supermarkets for the purpose of detecting purchase or consumption of alcoholic drinks by under-age youngsters.

Mr. Giles Shaw

I understand from the chief constable of West Midlands police that the laws relating to under-age drinking are enforced as part of general police duties and that he has no plans for special arrangements.
