Liquor Amendment Bill

LIQUOR AMENDMENT BILL
A showdown is looming over the draft Liquor Amendment Bill - which aims to raise the legal drinking age and ban alcohol advertisements.
The Bill, drafted and published for comment in 2016, is before Cabinet. It was proposed
by the Department of Trade and Industry and further amended by the Health Department.
Among the amendments is raising the legal alcohol drinking age from 18 to 21. The
Health Department called for the Bill to include a law which banned radio and TV adverts
from 6am until 10pm, daily.
No billboards advertising liquor will be allowed within 100
metres of junctions, street corners and traffic circles.
