New Zealand: Alcohol Law Improvements Agreed, Brought UnderwayPosted November 02 2022
The Government of New Zealand has announced plans to reform the country’s alcohol laws in two parts. The first phase will be the removal of the appeals process of local alcohol policies. The second phase will address issues related to alcohol sponsorship and marketing, but the government has not stated exactly what measures will be put in place in this regard.
The planned government alcohol law reform is separate from the private members’ Bill by MP Chlöe Swarbrick, “The Sale and Supply of Alcohol (Harm Minimisation) Amendment Bill” but shares certain similarities specifically in phase 1.
