I don't think it is a question of either/or - its about findings the right balance. But the evidence clearly shows there is a limited effect on behaviour change through 'education' alone.

Alcohol policy is an important thing, something needs to be done, but what is a difficult question.

I have always been in favour of education over heavy legislation.
