The Australian Parliament House should be alcohol free

The Australian Parliament House should be alcohol free

Place a total ban on Alcohol in the Australian Parliament House.

Why is this important?

The Parliament is a workplace, arguably, the most important one in the country. Community standards, as often stated in the Parliament, do not accept alcohol and drugs in the workplace. It is not in the interest of the health of the Parliamentarians and their staff, nor is it conducive to good decision making and responsible behaviour. The Parliament should be exemplary in this regard. This is not a political issue and should be treated in a bipartisan manner.


Reasons for signing

  • This is important regardless of your politics. It is not anti alcohol rather anti alcohol in the workplace.
