AER responds to 2010/11 federal budget: $50 million for binge drinking welcomed, but far from comprehensive alcohol reform

Date posted: 12 May 2010

The Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Foundation (AER) today acknowledged the extension to the Federal Government's National Binge Drinking Strategy. AER Director Professor Ian Webster stressed the need for additional funding and committment to realistically minimise the impact of alcohol misuse on the Australian community. AER supports the introduction of volumetric taxation, changes in licensing and regulation, marketing and promotion. Mr Webster highlighted the importance of alchol reform in order to bring about real change in the drinking behaviour of the Australian population.
