There has been a 26 per cent decrease in alcohol-related assaults in the Northern Territory since it introduced the country's first alcohol floor price and rolled out a range of new measures.

Key Points:

  • The Northern Territory Government's alcohol floor price came into effect in October 2018
  • Canada and Scotland are among the few other jurisdictions globally to set a floor price
  • The floor price was one of raft of recommended alcohol reforms rolled out by the NT Government

A preliminary data assessment published by the People's Alcohol Action Coalition and the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) showed there was also a 21 per cent decrease overall in domestic violence incidences in the NT since the floor price's introduction on October 1, 2018 until July 31, 2019.

The floor price set a minimum amount for which alcohol can be sold at $1.30 per standard drink.

In Alice Springs, where a raft of reforms were introduced following the 2017 release of the Riley review into alcohol policies, there has been a 43 per cent reduction in alcohol-related assaults and a 38 per cent reduction in domestic violence during that same period.

Concurrently, Tennant Creek saw drops of 28 per cent for both alcohol-related assaults and domestic violence.
