The Government's controversial Alcohol Reform Bill has passed its final hurdle in Parliament.
The legislation, which will keep the legal age for buying alcohol at 18 after a conscience vote by MPs, passed its third reading by 108 votes to 13.
The new law will also require parents to give express permission for their children to be supplied with alcohol, and alcohol displays and advertising in supermarkets will not be allowed in prominent areas of stores.
