Podcast #3: Secondary Supply Laws – ADF’s Geoff Munro

In the third and final podcast in the series from Victoria’s Alcohol Policy Coalition, Australian Drug Foundation’s (ADF) very own Geoff Munro, National Policy Manager, discusses the importance of secondary supply laws in Victoria. You can listen to Geoff’s interview now.

As  ADF’s National Policy Manager, Geoff Munro, has a wealth of knowledge in relation to national secondary supply laws, and in this podcast he discusses the effectiveness of secondary supply laws specific to Victoria and the rationale for these laws and the opportunities for future law reform in Victoria.

In 2014 the APC commenced work on an alcohol policy roadmap project, examining the current state of alcohol law and policy in Victoria, and looking at areas for law reform and policy development, with the overall goal of reducing alcohol related harm in the state.

In the first phase of this project, the APC are examining:

  • state powers to limit children and young people’s exposure to alcohol advertising;
  • the impact of planning laws on alcohol policy including the ways in which planning laws can be better utilised to reduce alcohol related harm; and
  • national model laws on secondary supply.

As part of this project, the APC have produced a series of podcasts on the three current focus areas.

If you missed the previous two podcast in the series, which discussed alcohol marketing and young people, and the role of planning in managing alcohol related harm, it’s not too late. You can listen to them now.

This project is an APC project, with support from the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth). The Australian Drug Foundation are a founding member of the APC.
