No alcohol on public transportation? (UK)

Should be complimentary.
Blair in retreat over ban on drinking

The Government was in full retreat last night over a proposal to ban drinking on all forms of public transport as part of new campaign against anti-social behaviour.

Tories and Lib Dems said the proposed ban was ridiculous
After senior ministers distanced themselves from the idea, train operators said it was unworkable and Opposition politicians said the Government was "obsessed" with banning things, Downing Street made clear that there were no plans for a "blanket ban" on alcohol on trains and buses.
