"There has never been a better time to be knocking on government's door to strengthen alcohol control and intervention policies," said Shenker. "We must campaign hard for increased funding for a range of alcohol interventions and for much tighter policy controls to reduce the rising costs of alcohol misuse."

Penny McVeigh, chair of Alcohol Concern, said: "Don is a skilled and passionate advocate for change in alcohol policy. His experience gives him a direct understanding of alcohol issues in the community."
