A majority in the Dutch Parliament last week four motions regarding alcohol policy.

The motions request the government:

  • to provide financial support for IkPas, a campaign to abstain for 30 or 40 days, and for the marketing monitoring project conducted by The Netherlands Institute for Alcohol Policy STAP;
  • to examine which EU countries have adapted far-reaching measures concerning alcohol advertising (e.g. in the field of sport sponsoring);
  • to study the effectiveness of the obligatory course on responsible drinking for licence candidates (and their staff);
  • to send a letter to all municipalities that they should no allow that some entrepreneurs of non-food stores and other non-licensed retailers, sell and serve alcoholic beverages in violation of the Alcohol Licensing and Catering Act.
