Grog sellers liable, drinkers need permits: summit demands

Requiring buyers of alcohol to have a permit, even in Alice Springs; making sellers of alcohol share liability for accidents or crimes in which grog is a factor; and motivating indigenous communities to divert already existing government funding towards reduction of harmful drinking: These are among measures called for by the two-day Aboriginal grog summit that ended in Alice Springs today, according to Priscilla Collins, CEO of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. Ms Collins is pictured at the summit this morning.
