June Oscar wants alcohol restrictions to stay

Date posted: 26 February 2015

A leading community worker in Western Australia says she would not like to see alcohol restrictions removed in the Kimberley, even if the number of Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder cases falls.

Currently, a number of communities have restrictions, including Kununurra and Wyndham, where takeaway alcohol can only be sold between 12pm and 8pm.

June Oscar, from the Marninwarntikura Women's Resource Centre, has been at the centre of a campaign to highlight the effects of drinking alcohol during pregnancy.

She told Radio Goolarri the restrictions are working to address problem drinking in the Kimberley and should stay in the long-term.
