Queenslanders call politicians to account over alcohol harms

Queensland has a problem with alcohol, and with less than two weeks until the 2015 QLD State Election, voters are calling on the major parties to outline their plans to address the State’s heavy alcohol toll.
New polling released today has shown a majority (74%) of Queenslanders believe that more needs to be done to reduce the harm caused by alcohol, with 64 per cent calling on Premier Campbell Newman and Queensland Labor Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk, to outline their plans to address alcohol-related harms ahead of the Election.
