The foetal alcohol syndrome, 1980

Submitted by: the Alcohol Related Matters Permanent Working Party  

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, conscious of growing international concern amongst medical practitioners and scientists regarding the effect of alcohol on the foetus, urges Her Majesty’s Government: (a) to consider measures to inform the public about the possible harmful effects of alcohol on the unborn child; (b) to support research in the UK into the level of alcohol consumption regarded as ‘safe’ during pregnancy; and (c) to seek the full co-operation of the medical profession in advising pregnant women of the dangers of alcohol consumption.
