Lockout Laws Review – March 2016

Policy Submissions

March 30, 2016

Submission by Music Australia

Prepared by ClarkeKann and Music Australia

Music Australia has prepared this Lockout Laws Review as the basis for our submissions to the Senate Inquiry into the need for a nationally-consistent approach to alcohol-fuelled violence, and the Callinan Independent Review of liquor law reforms in NSW. We make the case that it is questionable whether the laws will achieve their aim, and that they will have substantial adverse impacts on the contemporary music industry, night time economies, and tourism.

We are grateful to ClarkeKann Lawyers for generously donating their services and expertise to contribute to this Review.
