Pubs drive out under-age drinking
1 June, 2010
The number of under-age people drinking in pubs and bars is being driven down, according to the latest statistics on alcohol consumption from the NHS Information Centre.
Among 11 to 15 year-olds in England who drink alcohol, just 7% said they had purchased drinks from pubs or bars. The figures are for 2008, and compare with a proportion of 13% buying from pubs or bars in 1996.
Overall levels of alcohol consumption among children may also be falling, with only 18% of school pupils aged 11 to 15 claiming to have had a drink within the previous week, compared to 26% in 2001.
