NSW Lockouts Failure Revealed: ATA Report

3 months 2 weeks ago

RELEASE: NSW Lockouts Failure Revealed: New Report

Key Findings

  • Lockouts have either failed or had little impact on violence in cities across Australia and the United States

  • Lockouts have displaced crime to other areas, intensified violence in existing areas by simply lowering foot traffic, encouraged irresponsible drinking in unmoderated environments, and forced pub patrons out on the streets where they are more likely to be victims of violence

  • Lockouts have devastated small business, resulted in severe job losses, and deprived Sydney's economy of a $16 billion a year boost

  • Liquor laws must punish wrongdoers. Not the millions of responsible revelers who want to have a good time, the hardworking businesses they patronise, or their workers

The Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance, a 75,000+ member grassroots advocacy group representing the country’s taxpayers, today released their submission to the NSW’s inquiry on Sydney’s night-time economy and called for the Berejiklian government to abolish Sydney’s lockout laws for good.
