Parents who allow their children to drink alcohol in public may be fined £1,000 or forced to do community work under plans to be announced by the Home Secretary on Wednesday.
Jacqui Smith is expected to unveil proposals for new "parenting contracts" that could be served on those whose under-age children are caught drinking.
