With a new (and widely despised) liquor licensing regime due to kick off next month the Liberals have told the ABC they’re going to move in the Assembly to disallow the regulations which contain the policy settings (the fee structure).
Ms Dunne says the system is a blunt instrument and the Opposition will move a disallowance motion in the Legislative Assembly later this week.
“We don’t believe that the Minister has taken into account a whole range of factors that relate to risk,” she said.
“We don’t believe for instance that the Minister has considered rewarding people who run orderly houses, rewarding people for their good behaviour. He hasn’t considered increasing fees for people who have a poor compliance record.”
Over to the Greens to decide the issue.
UPDATE: The ABC reports that the Greens have voted with the Government to defeat the disallowance motion. Full steam ahead.
