Nightclubs and pubs where violent fights regularly break out should be forced to serve drinks in plastic bottles and cups, an MP believes.
Labour's Ian Lucas (Wrexham) said local authorities should be allowed to ban venues from serving drinks in glasses where there has been a history of assaults.
Too many youngsters were being left with deep scarring after being glassed in clubs and pubs, he saidm, giving an example of one victim in his constituency, student Nicola Roberts, who needed 17 stitches after being hit by a glass bottle thrown across a room while on a night out.
In Newport, South Wales, the council had successfully banned glass bottles from venues after 10pm on a Friday and Saturday night, he told the Commons.
Proposing his Plastic Glasses and Bottles (Mandatory Use) Bill under the 10-minute rule motion, Mr Lucas said: "Violent incidents and attacks on our constituents, particularly young people, remain common.
"As long as glassing incidents continue to take place in pubs and clubs, it is the government's responsibility to take action to prevent more violence from occurring.
"The government needs to ensure that local authorities use the powers they have to promote the use of plastic bottles in pubs and clubs where there is a history of violent incidents.
"What is most frustrating is that we have an alternative to lethal glass bottles available."
But his plans were attacked by Tory MP Philip Davies (Shipley), who said banning glass bottles was too much like the nanny state in action.
Instead, judges should hand out tougher prison sentences to those who use glass bottles violently.
Mr Davies said: "I support tougher sentences for people who perpetrate these terrible and horrific crimes. We should make sure they cannot be let out to commit them again."
But he did not push the Bill to a vote. The Bill received an unopposed first reading but is unlikely to make further progress due to lack of parliamentary time.
