We have already seen them successfully implemented in Newcastle and in Sydney. And these measures will be just as successful in Queensland. Venues that have, up until now profited from a business model predicated on selling lots of booze, often to people who are already intoxicated, will lose business. Which is why we see the alcohol industry so desperately opposed to the measures,” Mr Thorn said
