Queensland Government announces ongoing campaign to address alcohol-related violence

25 June 2015

Following on from the regime introduced by the previous Government, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills, the Hon. Yvette D'Ath announced on June 19 the Palaszczuk Government's commitment to clamping down on alcohol fuelled violence by ensuring that licensed venues are "...safe places for everyone to enjoy."
