The NT Government is seeking your comments and feedback on the Exposure Draft of the Liquor Bill 2019.

The Northern Territory Government committed to modernising the Liquor Act 1978 in response to the 2017 Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review Final Report (the Riley Review).

Since February 2018, Government has worked with industry and relevant stakeholders to rewrite the Liquor Act 1978 to meet community expectations, give NT regulatory bodies substantive, flexible and sensible powers, provide businesses and community groups with regulatory certainty, and achieve long term benefits for the Northern Territory.

The Exposure Draft of the Liquor Bill 2019 has been released for consultation and public comment.

Submissions must be received by COB Friday 26 April 2019.
