The actual "debate" seemed to be an opportunity for some MPs to raise their own agendas. Besides a couple of droll anecdotes about drinking culture, one MP actually suggested that being in the EU was promoting easier access to cheap wine and so ... The UK should quit the EU.

Oh dear, there goes "The Point" out through the window, above that MPs head.

There were some very salient points made among the parliamentary wordplay.
More overt consultation ought to be made. And does anyone think they are going to make any actual recommendations ?

Yes, why aren't alcohol coordinators being consulted- Some strategy user involvement would be nice!
