The Government body is in the process of shortlisting six undisclosed shops to pitch for the business.

The successful agency will be briefed to produce digital advertising campaigns aimed at changing attitudes towards alcohol among children, young people and their parents and carers.

Confirmation of the review comes shortly after the DCSF kicked off a pitch for the above-the-line account.

A pitch for the media planning account ended last month when Manning Gottlieb OMD beat Naked and Starcom MediaVest to win the business.
