Should reckless drinkers pay 999?

Monday August 6 2018

A PROPOSAL has been made in Wales to charge people who require an ambulance due to irresponsible drinking to pay the cost of the call out.

South Wales West AM Suzy Davies made the proposal in a speech and said: "People that take up the valuable time of our ambulance service through their own irresponsible drinking should be charged for that call."

The average cost of calling out an ambulance is £155. 

Do you think this is fair?
