Vicki Dunne is wondering aloud whatever happened to the review of the ACT’s liquor laws:
- “The government issued a discussion paper in March last year, calling for submissions by 30 June 2008,” said Mrs Dunne.
“In the Estimates Committee hearings in May this year, the Attorney-General, Simon Corbell, admitted that he had taken advice on the progress of the review only ‘one or two weeks’ prior to the hearings and that it would be ‘a few months’ before he would be taking anything to Cabinet.
“So, here we are, 16 months after the discussion paper was issued and more than a year after the closing date for submissions and still nothing has been mentioned.
Anyone want to bet they’ll come up with something after, and not before, the ALP ceases to be one of the biggest bar owners in town?
