Public health officer questions NTs alcohol protection order

Date posted: 13 December 2013

A South Australian public health officer has questioned the effectiveness of the Northern Territory government's 'Alcohol Protection Order'. The bill will see those convicted of committing a crime while intoxicated face limitations on buying and consuming alcohol as well as entering licensed premises. Public Health Medical Officer at the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia, Dr David Scrimgeour, says community supported programs to battle substance abuse are often more effective than legal punishment.
