To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what regulations he plans to introduce governing the production and sale of alcopops drinks. 
§ Mr. George Howarth
The Government are very concerned about the promotion and sale of certain alcoholic drinks to children, and I am holding urgent talks with the drinks industry. I am also chairing a Ministerial Group to examine options for Government action. We shall not hesitate to act if the industry response is unsatisfactory.
