Reflections upon Alcohol in Our Lives: 10 Years after the Law Commission Report

Sir Geoffrey Palmer QC (Victoria University of Wellington), Reflections upon Alcohol in Our Lives: 10 Years after the Law Commission Report, SSRN (2022):

A speech delivered to Alcohol Action New Zealand’s annual meeting on 13 August 2019. The speech provides an overview of the Law Commission’s 2008–2010 inquiry into New Zealand’s laws concerning the sale and supply of alcohol, as well as the Government’s response. It argues that the Government’s Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 did not follow the Law Commission’s recommendations in many important respects, and that it constitutes a substantially watered down and less effective version of the Alcohol Harm Reduction Act recommended by the Commission. The address makes the case for using deliberative democracy techniques to reform New Zealand’s liquor laws once again.
