SHAAP/SARN PhD and Early Career Research Symposium Report

SHAAP has published a new report which outlines proceedings from SHAAP and SARN's inaugural PhD and Early Career Research Symposium held on 18th April 2016 in the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

The day consisted of eight short presentations from researchers at varying time-points within the academic
journey from a range of institutions across Scotland, the UK and Europe. The presentations were followed by
three roundtable sessions where participants had the opportunity to discuss the PhD journey, share experiences,
identify opportunities for collaboration and understand where and how SARN and SHAAP can help in the future.
The symposium was brought to a close with a plenary session from Dr Edward Duncan, Senior Research Fellow,
University of Stirling. The session was chaired by Dr Aisha Holloway, Chair of SARN and Eric Carlin, Director of
SHAAP.

Eric Carlin Commentary on MUP, 'The Times', 21.10.16

Eric Carlin, SHAAP's Director, has called in 'The Times' (26th October 2016) for the Scottish Whisky Association's members to require the Association to drop its opposition to MUP, following the decision in favour of the policy by the Court of Session. He argues that this might go some way to repairing the industry's tarnished reputation.

Scottish Court finds MUP legal - SHAAP Press Release

SHAAP has issued a press release welcoming today's announcement by the Scottish Court that MUP is legal.

We call on the Scotch Whisky Association and other multi-national alcohol producers to get out of the way and allow the law to be implemented as soon as possible.

SHAAP Response to Northern Ireland Licensing Consultation

SHAAP has submitted a response to Northern Ireland Assembly's Committee for Communities consultation on the Licensing and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Bill.

In the response we welcome the proposal for regulations to tighten sales of and exposure to alcohol by minors. We express concern that in certain aspects of the Bill, the economic interests of individual venues/on-trade premises are being prioritised over the interests of public health and limiting exposure and access to alcohol by minors. We call on the Northern Ireland Assembly to include a licensing objective to protect public health in the Bill, as is the case in Scotland.
