The Mirror reports Shadow Health Secretary, Jon Ashworth spoke of the trauma of having to care for his father who was too drunk to buy food or walk him home from school. From the age of eight, he was his dad’s main carer.
Mr Ashworth speaking in a Parliamentary debate on alcohol harm, moved Health Minister Nicola Blackwood to tears as she praised him for his courage in speaking out.
“I hope each member who has spoken today will continue to work with me as we fight to tackle this social injustice”, she said promising to sit down with MPs to draw up a strategy for tackling the problem.
The Health Minister continues to state that the Government would sit down with MPs to develop Britain’s first ever strategy for children of alcoholics.
