The Salvation Army supports in principle the intention of the Bill. Specifically, we endorse:
a. the intention of this Bill to allow the Principal Act to meet its stated object of ensuring the sale, supply, and consumption of alcohol should be undertaken safely and responsibly, and the harm caused by the excessive or inappropriate consumption of alcohol should be minimised, and;
b. That licensing authorities or committees guarantee that any decision to renew an existing off-licence takes into serious consideration an existing local alcohol policy (LAP), thereby amending section 133 of the Act.
