Nats confirm conscience vote on alcohol purchase age

National has just announced:

As a caucus they agreed to:

  • A party vote on the alcohol law reform package, which is due for its first reading before the end of the year.
  • A conscience vote on the alcohol purchase age.
  • A party vote on all transport legislation designed to reduce the impact of drink driving on our roads.

I am glad National will allow MPs to debate and vote on the issue of the purchase age based on their genuine views of what will be best for New Zealand.
