SHAAP response to SG Police Powers to Search Children and Young People for Alcohol consultation
SHAAP has submitted a response to the Scottish Government's consultation on Police Powers to Search Children and Young People for Alcohol,
On this occasion, we have chosen not to support the proposals outlined in the consultation. Our response expresses concern about the effectiveness of the approach for the prevention of underage drinking and raises concerns about further stigmatisation of children and young people. Instead, we call for a broader approach to tackle the price, avaialbilty and marketing of alcohol.
