1am Lockouts scrapped

Labor’s striking the right balance between a vibrant nightlife and a safe night out

Thanks to Marty from Cobbler for having me today. Shout out to the boys who recently took out the title of National Small Bar of the Year!

Yesterday, the Palaszczuk Government made the decision to scrap the 1am lockout.

Good governments aren’t afraid of hard reform, but they’re also not afraid to respond and change based on the views of the community, experts and industry.

I’m confident that the alcohol-fuelled violence laws we have introduced strike the right balance between community safety and protecting our vibrant nightlife.

The rollout of ID scanners will also mean those with a history of drunken violence are kept out of our safe night precincts, ensuring we all have a safe night out.
