Daniel Andrews promises to ditch dry zone
Daniel Andrews has promised to scrap a century-old dry zone in Melbourne’s east if Labor wins the state election later this month.
The dry zone, which covers parts of Ashburton, Glen Iris, Camberwell, Canterbury, Box Hill, Balwyn, Mont Albert and Surrey Hills, has been in place since the 1920s anti-alcohol movement.
This morning CEO of the Australian Hotels Association Victoria, Paddy O’Sullivan, told Ross and John that he supports scrapping the alcohol-free zone.
“I think that’s a great idea…Victoria is open for business so why not Camberwell, Mont Albert and Surrey Hills as well?” he said.
