I agree this govt has done nothing to stop the drinking culture. Its high time they stop with the excuses. Nevermind throwing the problem to local councils. Stop anymore and start saying no to outlets. Make a ruling on rtds to have them cut back to 2 percent. This is a persons first drink. It should not be higher than 2. Why would you leave it to the alcohol industry? Put the prices up and get alcohol out of supermarkets. People should be able to shop without seeing the stuff.
