Members of parliament look at Groote Eylandt alcohol management

Date posted: 8 April 2015

A Federal Parliamentary Committee is seeing what lessons can be learned from Groote Eylandt's liquor management plan.

Like many remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia, Groote Eylandt, in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory, once had a huge alcohol use problem. But in the past decade, a liquor management plan is being credited with doing much to reduce the harm.

Now, it's the subject of a Federal Parliamentary Committee hearing.

Liberal MP, Dr Sharman Stone, is the chair of a House of Representatives inquiry into the harmful use of alcohol in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
