NZ: Alcohol Should Be Hidden Like Dirty Movies

Mittwoch 2. März 2011 von htm

Displaying alcohol in supermarkets should be treated in the same way as dirty movies are displayed in a video store, the Alcohol Reform Bill select committee was told today. Alcohol Action said the proposals adapted by the Government from a Law Commission report into alcohol reform did not go far enough.
Alcohol should not easily accessible and should not be displayed at the front of stores or with other products such as fruit and vegetables, the group said today.
„Supermarkets are treating alcohol like it’s a commodity rather than a drug,“ spokeswoman Professor Jennie Connor said. „It should be treated like dirty movies, they should be in one corner of the supermarket at the back.“
The group opposed the continuation of supermarkets being allowed to sell alcohol and said it was not fair for children or those trying not to drink to be constantly exposed to it.
The bill, drafted last August, would affect bar hours, off-licence trading, liquor advertising and the purchase age. (Source: Alcohol Reports, 03/01/11) voxy.co.nz, 02/24/11
