Meanwhile the widely-awaited Report of the Strategic Task Force on Substance Misuse, due in the next month or so, is likely to have some words proposing a social levy on all retailers of alcohol which has been described as a ‘disaster’ by the industry.

The Report is also likely to contain references to marketing freedoms, sponsorships, ads and  watersheds etc which will need to be scrutinised carefully.
