Comment on Real Action in the wrong direction? by Hal Duell.

I can’t comment on a floor price, but others certainly have a lot to say, both pro and con.
Volumetric taxation means taxing the alcohol in alcohol. Seems to be a no-brainer to me. If the price goes up, the price goes up. Or lower the tax.
But labeling with a suitably graphic warning regarding the risk of drinking while pregnant, especially in the first trimester, is without doubt a no-brainer. Make it as ugly and as scary as the tobacco attack ads. Foetal alcohol damage is forever.
I’ll repeat that – foetal alcohol damage is forever!

I can’t resist adding the following to the comment mix on how to get going in the wrong direction.

Real Action in the wrong direction?
Remember when Big Tobacco seemed untouchable?
Well, plain packaging was upheld by the High Court today.
I say beware Big Alcohol.
You, too, are reachable.
Lead the way, or be told.
What’s it gonna be?

“Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.”
That comment is simply not true.
