Christian Democrats call for alcohol ban for the under-18s

31 May 2012

An increase in the legal drinking age from 16 to 18 would help stem the growth in the number of teenagers drinking them selves into a coma, CDA leader Sybrand van Haersma Buma says in Thursday’s Telegraaf.
At the moment 16-year-olds can buy beer and wine but only 18-year-olds can buy spirits.

The plan to raise the drinking age will be included in the CDA manifesto for the September general election, the paper says.
