Your right to have a good night: End the 3am lockout

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

James Barbeler
PO Box 3228

Total Signatures - 1142

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 6/10/2011

Closing Date: 30/11/2011

Tabled Date: 1/12/2011

Responded By: Hon Paul Lucas MP on 22/12/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the community's concern with the lack of evidence the 3am lockout reduces alcohol related violence, and the problems it causes for residents and visitors to our entertainment precincts.  We acknowledge the need to combat alcohol related violence and provide a safe entertainment precinct; however the 3am lockout is not the right policy to achieve this.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to replace the outdated and ineffective 3am lockout policy with a comprehensive new strategy that provides safe and enjoyable entertainment areas for patrons, businesses and residents.
