Sir Geoffrey Palmer QC (Victoria University of Wellington), Alcohol, Health and the Law Commission's Liquor Review, SSRN (2022):
An address to the Alcohol Advisory Council's “Working Together” conference, delivered on 15 May 2009. The address focuses on the health and injury-related consequences of alcohol consumption, from foetal alcohol disorders to chronic diseases. It argues that the risks associated with alcohol are not just confined to binge-drinkers, but are in fact universal. It also highlights the significant burden placed on government expenditure and health services by hazardous alcohol consumption.
