Says millionaire Lib Dem MP Lynne Featherstone:
…Drunk and disorderly behaviour amongst under-18’s is still a significant problem.
Many of our town centres are becoming no-go zones on Friday and Saturday nights. While the majority of young people behave responsibly the fact that over 31,000 under 18’s were prosecuted for being drunk and disorderly will be a major worry for parents everywhere.
Binge drinking can cause significant health problems for young people and it is now clear it is a major social problem in our communities.
So why is it Lib Dem policy to lower the legal drinking age to 16?
