Leading national and international bodies suggest that statutory controls on alcohol marketing are required to reduce consumption and harm. Few studies, however, have measured the implementation and impact of such measures and the UK Government’s last alcohol strategy concluded there was insufficient evidence to support their introduction. As the Scottish Government prepares to consult on new controls, and Ireland have begun to introduce restrictions, this fellowship will examine the impact, implementation, and acceptability of statutory marketing controls.
