Thanks for the comment Peter. I am not aware of an age breakdown for England and Wales. It's surprising there wasn't one for England in the recent CMO report - given the situation you highlight in Scotland.

On the "saga louts" issue. I used the term (coined by Alan Bennett, I believe) ironically, contrasting the hidden and neglected nature of alcohol problems in older people with the policy focus on young people and public disorder.

I hope the press focus on the term didn't offend people (other than a few newspaper colunmists)and got the message over.

The data can be found on
under Information.
The report is Alcohol Statistics Scotland 2007, published at end of January 2007.

English and Welsh data from the Information Centre aren't broken down by age. Is this data published elsewhere?
