HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c349W
Mr. Hood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of the number of criminal convictions of people under 18 years of age where alcohol was directly or indirectly related to the offence.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Four hundred and sixty-one people under the age of 18 had a charge proved against them for drink related offences in 1987. In the official statistics, such offences comprise drunkenness (including the offences of being drunk and incapable, disorderly behaviour on licensed premises and certain others) which accounted for 183 of the cases, drunk driving (133) and offences under the liquor licensing laws (144). No information is available on the number of offences in which alcohol was indirectly related to the offence.
