In it's April report the Commission called for reforms including raising the age at which people can buy alcohol from 18 to 20, and restricting trading hours for liquor outlets.
While the government has yet to give its official response, the Justice Minister has indicated that it would consider reducing the hours in which liqor can be sold, changes to advertising aimed at under 20 years olds and make it more difficult to gain a liquor license.
Any change to the purchase age would be a conscience vote.
