Queensland Government drops 1am lock out laws

Justin Campbell discusses the Queensland Government’s back down on 1am lockout laws.
Today Annastacia Palaszczuk MP announced that Queensland will not go ahead with a scheduled 1am lock out, instead choosing to introduce mandatory scanning of ids.

LibertyWorks congratulates Keep Queensland Open and No Curfew on a successful campaign. Lockout laws are collective punishment for the crimes a few. People have the right to enjoy a night out with their friends with government interference.

The recent resignation of Mike Baird should be a warning to all governments of the consequences of pursuing heavy handed nanny state policies.
