NT alcohol laws 'don't go far enough'

Jennifer Lush | SBS Radio | 24 February 2012 

The NT government is hailing the results of its measures to combat alcohol abuse, but it's being urged to do more.

The Northern Territory government says data on alcohol-related assaults over the past six months shows new reforms are working.

The Territory government introduced the 'Enough is Enough' legislation in July last year, which included a Banned Drinkers Register and a Special Substance Misuse Assessment and Referral to Treatment court.

Dr John Boffa from the People's Alcohol Action Coalition says the initial results do appear positive.

But he told Jennifer Lush more needs to be done.
