12 per cent of Bronglais alcohol-related treatment involve under 18s.

We should be concerned at the number of under 18s admitted to Bronglais General Hospital with alcohol related problems. Figures obtained by Plaid Cymru show that since 2002, an average of 12.2 per cent of individuals needing treatment for alcohol-related problems at Bronglais Hospital. This compares to an average of 8.8 per cent for all hospitals in the Hywel Dda LHB area and a Welsh average of 7.1 per cent during the same period. Dyfed-Powys Police Force recently received new powers to tackle underage drinking in the Policing and Crime Act. The new law gives the police to confiscate alcohol from under 18s, tackle persistent underage drinkers and charge businesses supplying alcohol to minors. The Police need to be using these powers and we need to raise alcohol awareness with added education in schools.

dylai pobl sy'n cael eu trin mewn ysbyty pan yn feddw dalu am hynny.

Drwy'r poced mae'r ffordd mwyaf effeithiol o fynd i'r afael a phroblem gor-yfed yn ein cymdeithas. Gwastraff amser yw ymgyrchoedd 'ymwybyddiaeth' etc.

Gwastreffir gormod o arian gall fynd at driniaethau eraill ar idiots meddw sy'n gor-yfed.
