The Alcohol Health Alliance published the results of a recent YouGov poll of more than 12,000 Brits which suggests that there is strong public support for new controls to help protect children from alcohol advertising.

The poll found that:

  • 77% of Brits support controls to limit the exposure of children and young people to alcohol advertising
  • 70% of people support stopping alcohol adverts from being shown on TV before 9pm
  • 72% of people support only allowing alcohol advertising in cinemas for films with an 18 certificate
  • 57% of people support not allowing alcohol advertising in outdoor and public spaces such as streets, parks and public transport
