Health warnings similar to those on tobacco products should be added to alcohol labels, according to a group of parliamentarians.
The recommendation is one of ten by the All Parliamentary Party Group on Alcohol Misuse, aimed at reducing problem drinking.
The drink-driving limit should be lowered, and details of the nutritional, calorific and alcohol content of products should also be added to packaging, they say.
Currently, the group said, information on alcohol products "extends no further than the volume, strength and the unit cost."
According to the group, liver disease in those under 30 has more than doubled over the past 20 years, and 1.2 million people a year are admitted to hospital due to alcohol.
