Scottish Government’s alcohol abuse initiative honoured with European Award. Was that reported?
It was on the 23rd November 2016. I’ve just come across it and was surprised to see it. I can’t recall it being reported and certainly not broadcast proudly. I might have missed it but it would have been a big headline wouldn’t it? It was before I went into hospital so I would have been watching all the time. I’ve searched but can’t find any mainstream Scottish media report of it.
