To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he will publish the Government's strategic plan on combating alcoholism. 
§ Ms Blears
I have been asked to reply.
The Prime Minister's Strategy Unit are undertaking a project to develop an alcohol harm reduction strategy for England. In my previous role as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health I was the Sponsor Minister for the project and I am pleased to continue in this role.
The cross-governmental alcohol harm reduction strategy for England will be set out in a report planned for publication in autumn 2003.
