Drinkers should give themselves two alcohol-free days a week, a committee of MPs said today.

The Commons’ Science and Technology Committee believed abstaining from alcohol at least twice a week would help people’s health. Revealing the findings of their inquiry, the MPs also demanded a review of sensible drinking guidelines amid fears they are unclear, and called on ministers to “exercise proper scrutiny and oversight” over how health messages collided with the industry’s “business objectives”.
