    Parliament: MPs Vote Today On Whether To Raise Drinking Age

    The Keep-it-18 campaign has pointed to figures from the Alcohol Liquor Advisory Council (ALAC) to show that the claims by promoters of raising the drinking age back to 20 that youth drinking is "out of control" are misleading and don’t focus on the real issues behind New Zealand's drinking problems.

    Fireworks: Peter Dunne Explains That Prohibition Does Not Work

    United Future leader Peter Dunne says a total ban on fireworks sales to the public would be a step too far... "Only the naïve, or the killjoys in our community could seriously imagine that such a ban would work... Where will it end? Fireworks police doing snap raids on people's homes to check they are not illicitly holding fireworks?" See... Dunne: firework ban a step too far [1]
