Alcohol consent a cause for concern

Do you buy alcohol for your kids?

Well how do you feel about other parents letting your underage teens have a drink?

South Australia is one of the few places in Australia where it’s legal for minors to drink if they’re on private property. The argument is that the drinking can be controlled by adults, however this is a concept subject to great debate.

Liberal Member for Morialta John Gardner plans to introduce a private member’s bill which will ban the serving of alcohol to minors in private homes, unless there is consent from parents.

Angus Randall spoke to John about the plan and it’s implications.
