Political parties attitudes to reducing alcohol trading hours

Policy Online (3.2.15) carries the link to a report on the results of a survey of political parties on liquor licencing: Political party responses to the Queensland Coalition for Action on Alcohol.

‘A new report has found the Liberal National Party (LNP) has little appetite for evidence-based measures to reduce alcohol harms; with the Newman Government (LNP) indicating full support for only one in ten alcohol policy measures proposed by a group of leading public health experts.

‘The Queensland Greens, Labor and Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) all performed better, and the Queensland Coalition for Action on Alcohol (QCAA) says it is encouraged by the alcohol policy scorecard findings, and the growing support for more effective policy measures.’
