A GP explains: Why a minimum floor price for grog in the NT is welcome
From July a minimum price per standard drink — which has 10g of pure alcohol — will be set at $1.30. This will be applied to all alcoholic beverages. It will mean the average bottle of wine in the NT will cost around $9 or $10 rather than $4 or $5 at present. Alice Springs GP Dr John Boffa is welcoming the introduction of a minimum floor price for grog in the NT, where many communities have been deeply scarred by the effects of alcohol.
