England’s Dial-A-Drink Service Likely To Fuel Increased Alcoholism

A new service in England will be delivering alcoholic drinks 24 hours a day. Called Booze Bury, the company is set to begin business after it was granted permission by Bury Council. The company thought it had little chance, if any, to land the license but it did, shocking everyone including themselves. The council, who approved the license,reasoned that it approved the license because supermarkets also sell liquor 24 hours a day.

Atop health official in the UK, Dr Peter Elton, the director of public health at NHS Bury, said, “It is very dangerous for people to be able to buy alcohol and have it delivered to the door 24 hours per day. There is no doubt that increasing access in this way will increase problem drinking and lead to more hospital admissions and eventually to more people dying from alcohol-related disease. Public health is not against the enjoyment of alcohol in moderation, but making it easier for people to drink to excess both damages themselves and increases the risk of violence to others.”

Booze Bury had applied for a trading license twice before but were rejected both times due to public health reasons and because the police were concerned about anti-social behavior, domestic violence and the safety of delivery drivers.
