Mr Oswald to move ‑ That this House disagrees with the new guidelines published on 29 January 1991 for dealing with councils' requests for dry areas under the Liquor Licencing Act and in particular, as they affect applications made by seaside councils for alcohol bans on those sections of the foreshore which are not under their legal control such as beaches and jetties, and further, this House does not endorse the policy of making local councils and local ratepayers financially responsible for the care and rehabilitation of drinkers who descend on councils from other local government areas, believing this to be a State Government responsibility.
