I don't want a city-wide liquor ban that would make it a criminal offence to drink liquor in public. There are already laws for the police to deal with disorderly people. People just drinking alcohol should not be punished because all they are doing is putting a bottle in their mouth. If they get drunk and fight then the police can arrest them, but not everyone who drinks in public causes trouble.
Wellington City Councillors want to introduce a city-wide liquor ban that would make it a criminal offence to drink liquor on all the streets and at parks and beaches.
