Measures implemented to minimise alcohol consumption in Alice Springs

Date posted: 23 June 2011

The Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon, has congratulated Coles for showing community leadership by implementing measures to minimise alcohol consumption in Alice Springs. The retailer will be removing two-litre casks of wine from the shelves of its supermarket in Alice Springs from the start of July and will also set a minimum price for the sale of fortified wine. The measures come as part of the Enough is enough legislative changes aimed at tackling problem drinking, including introducing bans on problem drinkers supported by electronic ID systems, imposing mandatory treatment orders, and improving rehabilitation and treatment services.
