Research into failing alcohol marketing regulations affects policy

23 April 2013

Dutch Secretary of Health Martin van Rijn will soon start discussions with the Ministry of Education about how young people between 12-18 years can be better protected from the influence of alcohol advertisements on TV. In this pursuit, the Secretary said he will look into various instruments, such as self-regulation, a media guide and adapting the current time ban.

These plans became apparent today when Van Rijn answered questions from various MPs about the article 'Do time restrictions on alcohol advertising reduce youth exposure?'.
