Portman Group response to Scottish Government Consultation

Commenting on the Scottish Government Consultation on Restricting Alcohol Advertising and Promotion, Matt Lambert, CEO of the Portman Group, said:

“As the UK alcohol marketing self-regulator, we welcome the Scottish Government’s intention to work collaboratively on achieving our shared goal to tackle alcohol harm and protect children from irresponsible marketing. The alcohol industry has a longstanding and serious commitment to market its products responsibly, and we believe this is recognised in the widespread public opposition to the previous blanket proposals.”
