为打击未成年人饮酒行为,西班牙政府考虑对因饮酒屡次入院治疗的青少年家长罚款。西班牙卫生部正在考虑将对父母罚款这一项提议加入《防止未成年人饮酒法案》。
 
Spain's government is considering a proposal to fine the parents of teenagers who are repeatedly found intoxicated1 in the latest measure to clampdown(压制) on underage drinking.
 
Parents of such drinkers who are treated more than once in hospital emergency wards2 could face financial penalties.
 
"Tolerating or assisting by inaction the repeated excessive consumption of alcohol is a form of child abuse because it affects their future abilities," said Francisco Babin, the government delegate for the National Drugs Plan (PND), unveiling the proposal.
 
"We must not forget that alcohol kills brain cells," he added.
 
Spain's ministry3 of health is considering the inclusion of such penalties in its draft Prevention of the Consumption of Alcoholic4 Drinks by Minors5 bill, announced in April.
 
The number of underage drinkers treated in hospital casualty departments across Spain has more than doubled in ten years, according to a recent report being studied by the Health Ministry.
 
"The age of those patients is also decreasing, indicating that recreational drinking of alcohol is starting at a younger age," wrote Dr Santiago Mintegi, the author of the report.
 
"Before, it was rare to find a case of alcohol poisoning among minors, but not now. Such cases arrive fairly frequently on a Friday and Saturday night."
 
However, there was immediate6 skepticism of the new proposal in medical circles. "I don't see how fining the parents will reduce teenage drinking," said Juan Gonzalez Armengol, president of Spain Society of Emergency Medicine (SEMES).
 
"It is more likely to mean that those suffering ill effects from alcohol are less likely to go to a hospital for fear of the consequences."
 
Half of Spain's 17 regions have already banned the "botellon" - a phenomenon that sees large groups of young people gather in parks or plazas7 to share cheap shop-bought alcoholic drinks and socialize through night.
