Competition Policy Review report released

At the end of March, the final report of the Competition Policy Review was released. Public health groups are lobbying so that competition doesn’t come at the expense of public health.

The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) have released a “report roundup” which evaluates the major findings of the Policy Review where they relate to alcohol. Read the report now.

There will also be an opportunity for public consultation and reaction to the Review’s recommendations, due on 26 May. Written submissions can be made by Tuesday 26 May 2015 to competition@treasury.gov.au.
