"Having read the thread I contacted the England Officials and wish to confirm that:

1) All the fencers were given copies of strict guidelines, these will be published along with the risk assessment on the England web for information.

2) The guidelines banned the drinking of alcohol for all fencers, including those O18.

3) The Officials were vigilant and were on duty till well after the rooms were silent.

4) The was no evidence of drinking among the English Fencers.

England Fencing would treat very seriously any drinking of alcohol amongst members of the England Junior Teams and if anyone has knowledge of this they should contact Peter Wright the Team Manager or myself.

I would like to thank the England Officials for running an excellent trip and thank the fencers for their behaviour.

John Ramsay
President of England Fencing
