Social Security and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2011
Senator, I think this is bringing it in line with the Northern Territory penalties and we think it reflects the appropriate level of penalty for these offences. I think it is really important to try to support the communities in dealing with these serious challenges to them and, as I say, the violence and dysfunction that comes from this serious alcohol misuse. If I can get further information for the senator, I am happy to take that on notice.
