The Role of Legislation in Diminishing the Misuse of Alcohol

  • Christopher Clayson


The three main factors which are supposed to limit the misuse of alcohol are social, fiscal and legal. It is imagined that this proposition will apply to any country and the three factors should operate in harmony with each other. In proportion as one controlling factor fails the repercussions of the other two increase until the point can be reached at which all three fail and it is suggested that it is virtually the situation which now confronts the United Kingdom.
