What is the meaning of "guardian" under the Care of Children Act 2004, in the context of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012?

Sale of Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 sections that refer to a guardian are sections 5, 119, 241, 246 and 277.

The Ministry of Justice advises that the only people who are guardians (as defined by both these Acts) are:

  • parents (except fathers who are not in a relationship with the mother and not on the birth certificate - unless appointed by the Court)

  • testamentary guardians (guardians appointed under a will).
