Vic govt seeking feedback on new liquor law

Last year the Victorian government introduced a law requiring liquor wholesalers to report their wholesale liquor supply information to the government. This brings Victoria into line with Queensland, Western Australia, the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory, which all use this information to work out how much people are drinking – Victoria currently has no way of doing this.

Although the law’s already been passed, it hasn’t come into effect just yet, and there’s a period of public consultation over two of the law’s appendices – submissions are due by 30 April.

Read more about the law, its appendices, and how to make a submission.
