ACT is the best,
still fails to pass
The ACT has been ranked first in the
country for its alcohol policies, drink
driving laws, Liquor Act reviews and a
risk-based licensing fee system for
liquor outlets but the territory still
failed to receive a pass on a national
alcohol policy scorecard.
Despite receiving an overall score
of only 48 per cent in the National
Alliance for Action on Alcohol's
report card, the ACT government was
named the national leader in alcohol
policy for a second year running.
No states or territories received a
pass grade - all scored below 50 per
The federal government was ranked
as the worst performer with a score of
just 9 per cent, which earned it the
2014 Fizzers award for inaction in
developing and implementing alcohol
policy last year.
The federal government's low score
largely reflected the lack of action and
deep funding cuts in a number of key
alcohol policy areas, NAAA co-chair
and Public Health Association of
Australia's alcohol spokesman,
Professor Mike Daube said.
Foundation for Alcohol Research
and Education chief executive Michael
Thorn said the ACT government was
the best performing jurisdiction
because of its policies to reduce and
prevent alcohol-related harm.
They've got a plan that has some
measurables in it, they've got good
strong drink-driving laws, the risk-
based licensing fee system for all
liquor outlets that's in place was really
cutting edge when it was implemented
and they've had a very good, open,
transparent review of the Liquor Act
which has been conducted over the
past 12 months or so.''
