The Alcohol Reform Bill passed its third and final reading in Parliament on 11th December 2012. The Act, known as the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, received Royal Assent on Tuesday 18th December 2012, concluding a four-year debate.
The Committee of the whole House divided the Alcohol Reform Bill into 3 Bills with new titles:
-Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012
-Local Government (Alcohol Reform) Amendment Act 2012
-Summary Offences (Alcohol Reform) Amendment Act 2012
The majority of the sections included in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 had a 6-12 month time lag between the date of Royal Assent and commencement, therefore substantial changes would not come into effect until 2014.
