NZ proposes new rules on alcohol sales

New Zealand’s government has proposed several changes to alcohol laws in a bid to curb youth drinking.

Only those over 20 years old – up from 18 – will be allowed to buy alcohol from shops.

The sale of pre-mixed drinks with more than 5 percent alcoholic content will be banned, as will be other products deemed geared to the youth market.
