The Great Alcohol Debate: Still waiting for the detail

Action on alcohol by the new Territory Government is still lacking detail, despite all the attention the issue got in the Legislative Assembly.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice John Elferink, making a Ministerial Statement on Alcohol and Crime on October 31, lauded former Chief Minister Marshall Perron's  Living with Alcohol program:  "Risks were taken, innovation given a chance and home-made programs were promoted." Not all of them flourished though because "clear analysis of the outcome allowed for a rigorous assessment and many programs were stopped on these criteria". Reading Hansard you can't see whether he blushed when he went on to criticise the former government for not taking "a leaf from this book".
