Liberal liquor law proposals

By johnboy - 28 September 2012 6

The Liberals have announced their plans to make life easier for liquor licensees that aren’t the Labor Club:

A Canberra Liberals Government will:

— Immediately abolish the requirement for establishments that operate solely as restaurants and cafes to complete and submit a Risk Assessment Management Plan.

— Review the requirement for Risk Assessment Management Plans for accommodation providers and “casual” licensees, with a view to removing this requirement where possible.

— In consultation with the industry, review the liquor regulatory regime (including licensing fees, occupancy loadings, outdoor areas, RSA training requirements, and incentives for encouraging responsible drinking behaviour) to develop a truly risk-based approach.

— Review enforcement arrangements to ensure coverage is adequate, but not excessive, and targeted effectively.

— Expand on-the-spot fines for low level alcohol-related antisocial behaviour.

— Build emphasis on personal responsibility, by requiring people to pay the cost of the use of the “sobering-up” facility.

— Help develop liquor laws similar to those in other jurisdictions.

— Ensure that students, as part of their vocational training, have an opportunity to do RSA training.

Yes, and we can cut the police force too, and make people responsible for turning themselves in for everything from DUI to burglary. Because self-regulation always works a treat.

In no way is this self-regulation.

I’ve been waiting for something like this to be proposed… If they get this policy/implementation right the pokie-trials will be a textbook success.

Getting a social drinking/entertainment culture back is long overdue.

….or we could just copy them outright?

About time.

However, won’t happen. ALP/ Greens will never let this through.

Let’s see if they can actually get them through the LA though.
