The Labour Party is proposing an amendment to allow the Minister of Justice to set a minimum price on alcohol.
The amendment intends to address New Zealand’s binge alcohol problem and relating harm.
However, the Government believes some people would switch to the lowest quality alcohol rather than drink any less volume.
The Government doesn’t want to commit to a decision until the ministry completes its research.
SunLive asked residents what they thought of putting a minimum price on alcohol.
