HUDDERSFIELD MP Barry Sheerman is backing action to reduce binge drinking and its impact on the NHS
He says it is time for people to "reclaim the streets" from young people who consume vast quantities of alcohol and terrorise town centres.
And he is calling for those with "self-inflicted" alcohol-related injuries to pay for treatment in hospitals.
"I believe that most of our towns and cities are no-go areas for anyone over 25 on an evening.
"Binge drinking is at such a level that you get quite extraordinary pressure in accident and emergency units and police time," he said.
Mr Sheerman has called for swift government action and has tabled several parliamentary questions to discover the cost to the NHS of alcohol related illness and accidents caused by excessive drinking.
He is also asking whether the Department for Health will consider introducing charges for those who end up in hospital as a result of getting drunk.
And he wants Home Secretary David Blunkett to consider making drinks companies pay for the damages caused by drinking large amounts.
Mr Sheerman, co-founder of a Parliamentary health group said "radical measures" were needed to curb binge drinking.
"Bars and breweries that encourage excessive drinking should be made to pay for the consequences," said Mr Sheerman.
