The Greens today announced plans to ban alcohol advertising in Australia.
“Alcohol significantly contributes to assaults, accidents and
suicides and the World Health Organisation considers that alcohol has a
similar impact on human health to tobacco,” Sarah Hanson-Young, Greens
Senate candidate for SA said today.
“Australia long ago banned tobacco advertising and sponsorship of
sporting and cultural events. The Greens will apply the same
restrictions to alcohol advertising,” Ms Hanson-Young said.
