The Sale of Liquor (Objections to Applications) Amendment Bill was defeated at its second reading stage. The aim of the bill was to place restrictions on the granting of on-licences and off-licences under the Sale of Liquor Act 1989, but those opposing said it had been overtaken by wider reforms proposed by the Government.

The bill’s sponsor George Hawkins requested a personal vote be taken and those against the bill proceeding were 63, while those for were 51.

The House rose at 9.55pm
