Alcohol - Liberal Democrats WA

Alcohol

The Liberal Democrats believe that,

  • Consuming alcohol, regardless of health risks, is a personal choice. We are neither pro-alcohol nor anti-alcohol, but pro-choice.
  • People who choose to consume alcohol should not be taxed excessively for doing so.
  • Any behaviour that places others under risk, i.e. drink driving, operating machinery while under the influence, should not be tolerated.

To that end, we will;

  • Eliminate the ‘sin tax’ of alcohol excise.
  • Ensure that laws pertaining to drink driving and drinking in some public places remain strong and fairly enforced.
