To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they plan to take to ensure that they meet the deadline to remove the out-of-date Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines from alcohol product labels.
The Government has worked with industry to ensure that alcohol labels reflect the United Kingdom Chief Medical Officer’s Low Risk Drinking Guidelines for drinks produced after 1 September 2019. The industry has committed to comply with this requirement. Local trading standards have powers to remove products manufactured after 1 September 2019, where those products have labels which include the old guidelines. Stock produced before 1 September 2019 can be sold through.
