Drinking Age

The Christian Democratic Party is joining other groups in calling for an increase in the drinking age. The West Australian (Nov 19, p7 “push to lift legal drinking age”) reported that some were calling for the age to be raised to 19. In NSW, CDP’s leader Rev Fred Nile is calling for a 0% blood alcohol level for all drivers under the age of 21.
