no, but it could be enforced in areas with high levels of violence resulting from alcohol

No because I believe in liberty, even if it's risky and potentially dangerous.

@9N9N82XLiberal answered…1yr

Only in high risk areas. Government should ensure there is proper public transport and lighting in those areas

No, There is not enough substantial evidence showing that lockout laws are effective.

People should be able to make their own decisions, and not be punished if they haven't done anything wrong. However, if this is some sort of uncontrollable by other methods outbreak of violence in one particular concentrated area, and everything done previously has failed, and only as a last resort, then I guess (if it's the absolute last thing left to do that would potentially work), you could introduce lockout laws. But it wouldn't be right to have them permanently, unless the issue is neverending.

However, this question is no longer relevant and should be removed, as no lock out laws are currently in effect in Australia.

Yes, but invite the hospitality industry organisations and employee organisation to establish compensation

50 - 50 The businesses shouldn't be blamed for the actions of a few but also drunk crime should be controlled

No, only if the government combats alcohol and drug abuse. At the current state, it’s good.

@9LKWJGDGreen answered…1yr

No, they increase the chance of violence and excess alcohol abuse within the suburbs and outside of security/police control.

@9KC6DGJLabor answered…1yr

Yes, but monitoring the rate of domestic violence at the same time. People who are inclined to assaulting others in public might do that at home instead.

Provided patrons are given safe environments when the lock out time comes

@9SP9CGHLabor answered…10mos

No, but Highschool children should be made very aware of the risks of alcohol in a public setting and the punishments need to be made clearer.

@9SJDL5KNationals answered…11mos

Yes, however lockout should begin one hour prior to each establishments closing time (determined by the establishment itself)

@9FXDQPRSocialist Alliance answered…1yr

It depends on the area, the lockout laws can prevent violence however the people committing this violence is almost only men, there should be a focus on violence within males rather than just creating lockout laws

@9S8TYV4Democratic Labour answered…11mos

only in proven trouble spots where a venue has had ongoing problems
