The second instalment of our Dare to Debate seminar series explores the issue of drinking alcohol during pregnancy
The second in our Dare to Debate series will take place on Tuesday 17th February, focusing on Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS).
It's estimated that 7,000 babies are born in the UK every year suffering the effects of FAS. These effects can include physical and mental problems, facial defects, learning and behaviour disorders and liver damage. However, in a recent High Court case a young victim lost a claim for criminal injuries damages because she was not considered to have a 'legal personality' when harm was inflicted on her.
