I’d definitely attend this if I was in Wellington. I encourage those interested in this issue to go along and hear the debate and have their say also:
Responsible Drinking: Who’s Responsible?
Responding to the Law Commission’s paper
Alcohol in our Lives: Curbing the Harm
Trinity Group invites you to attend a public forum to discuss the Law Commission’s recommended alcohol reforms
Trinity is a specialist hospitality company based in Wellington. It owns and operates bars, restaurants, bottle stores, and hotels and motels in the lower half of the North Island.
Trinity Group wants the government to:
• Retain the current alcohol purchase age at 18, and to establish a drinking age of 18 years old
• Encourage people to take personal responsibility for their drinking, and to
• Encourage people to drink more in regulated environments, such as bars.
Featuring the Hon Peter Dunne, United Future Leader and Associate Minister of Health and Gerard Vaughan, CEO, Alcohol Advisory Council of NZ
Chaired by Jeremy Smith, Managing Director, Trinity Group
6-7pm, Tuesday 27 July 2010
at the St Johns Bar, 5 Cable Street, Wellington
We will be serving complimentary nibbles and non-alcoholic drinks
Good on Trinity for arranging a forum, with balanced speakers. I find it interesting that they promote a drinking age, as well as a purchase age. This is where I tend to be also.
