Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies says that extreme measures have to be executed to curb increasing alcohol abuse rates which annually costs the government R3.7 billion.

There is a proposal to raise the minimum legal drinking age from 18 to 21.

Davies is convinced that hiking the legal drinking age to 21 will cut death rates linked to alcohol abuse.


He further says that there is evidence showing this has worked in other countries.
