Adelaide Oval Liquor Licence

In reply to the Hon. F. PANGALLO ().30 November 2022).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): The Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services has advised:

I have reviewed the report by Professor Ann Roche and note its findings.

The Malinauskas Labor government condemns any form of violence and we will continue to relentlessly speak up and act to prevent and end domestic violence. Domestic, family and sexual violence has no place in our community.

Our government is committed to enacting a range of legislative change, preventative actions and policies, and options for recovery that help women stay safe. Prevention is at the core our government's response to domestic, family and sexual violence. We have committed to providing $1 million in funding over three years to establish two domestic violence early intervention and recovery hubs in the north and south of Adelaide to support and empower women, and raise community awareness

The decision to permit cans at Adelaide Oval was taken independently by the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner, on terms as agreed between SAPOL and the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority (AOSMA). These include making stadium announcements on the screens during events at Adelaide Oval, in relation to responsible consumption of alcohol.
