Grog limits too lax in Kununurra

Date posted: 17 November 2016

A fresh push to tighten takeaway alcohol restrictions in Kununurra, Western Australia (WA), will be backed by influential Indigenous leader, Ian Trust, after he confirmed Wunan Foundation would write a submission to the Director of Liquor Licensing in support of the plan.

First suggested by Kununurra Police Senior Sergeant, Steve Principe, earlier this year, the plan would see limits slashed in half to one carton of beer or three bottles of wine per person, each day.

The Founder and Chief Executive of Wunan, a group committed to Aboriginal empowerment, Mr Trust said the organisation would join police and other agencies to compile hard data that outlines the need for the reduction.

Mr Trust said the proposed reduction would work in unison with the recently implemented cashless welfare card and takeaway alcohol management system being trialled in the East Kimberley.
