The Government's Alcohol Strategy, published on 23 March, sets out our intention to work with industry, through the Responsibility Deal Alcohol Network, to incentivise smaller servings by providing smaller measures as the default, and providing large measures only when specifically requested. Premises licences and club premises certificates that authorise sales of alcohol already contain a mandatory condition that still wine (when served by the glass for consumption on the premises) must be available to customers in 125 millilitre measures, and that customers are made aware of the availability of these measures.
