Bill to remove holiday alcohol restrictions gaining momentum

From Morning Report, 8:28 am on 8 April 2021

A Bill that would remove alcohol restrictions over Easter, Christmas Day and Anzac Day may gain extra momentum due to a rule change at Parliament.

Labour's Kieran McAnulty's Bill would change the rules around the need to buy food with alcohol on those days.

Under a new standing order, a Member's Bill can go straight to the top of the order paper if it has the backing of at least 61 MPs - who are not Ministers.

Kieran McAnulty spoke to Corin Dann.
