Aboriginal wellbeing and liquor licensing in Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is based on the results of a project undertaken as the basis for a submission to the committee established to review the Western Australia Liquor Licensing 1988. It reports on key issues relating to liquor licensing, as identified by members of regional Aboriginal organisations. Among these issues are the promotion of alcohol consumption and misuse, discriminatory practices by licensees and the police and the need for greater community involvement in liquor licensing decisions. To address these issues, members of the participating organisations proposed: inclusion of a harm-minimisation objective in the Act, education and training programs for the public, licensees and the police, and industry funding for harm-minimisation programs.
