>It is against the law:

>- For an adult to buy or attempt to buy alcohol on behalf of someone under 18.

>If you give your son a drink, that's fine. If you buy a bottle of cider for the kid outside the shop, that's illegal.

You missed a bit:

It is not illegal:

- For someone over 18 to buy a child over 16 beer, wine or cider if they are eating a table meal together in licensed premises.

- For a child aged five to 16 to drink alcohol at home or on other private premises.
