In July 2012, Cancer Council NSW responded to the Parliament of NSW Legislative Assembly inquiry into the provision of alcohol to minors.
In this submission, Cancer Council NSW recommended:
1. That the NSW Police Force strengthens enforcement of ss117(4) and (6) of the Liquor Act 2007 (NSW) relating to supply of alcohol to minors by persons other than the minor’s parent or guardian; and
2. That the NSW Parliament amends the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) to provide that damages may be awarded in respect of the death of or injury to a minor notwithstanding that the minor is intoxicated.
