New Zealand: Government’s Alcohol Measures Welcomed

Mittwoch 25. August 2010 von htm

The New Zealand Medical Association (NZMA) welcomes the Government’s new policies to address the many problems caused by excessive alcohol consumption, but would have liked the Government to implement additional measures such as a tax increase on alcohol, says NZMA Chair Dr Peter Foley. …“We acknowledge that the evidence supports age as a significant factor in the problems of inappropriate and excessive alcohol consumption. We support the split purchase age whereby people from the age of 18 can purchase alcohol at an on license premise but must be age 20 or over to purchase alcohol at an off license premise. We will be actively encouraging politicians to vote in favour of this measure,“ says Dr Foley. (Source: Medical News Today, 8/24/10)
