Even the Australian Hoteliers Association Northern Territory representative, Mr. John Auchter, recently expressed concern (ABC TV News, June 22) regarding the pro 1iferation of liquor outlets in the N.T: he suggested a moritorium on further licence issues. Take-away trading hours Take-away trading from establishments where liquor is also consumed on the premises is allowed 7 days a week and on 6 days where alcohol consumption is prohibited. Given the number of available outlets in the N.T., this level of access seems excessive when compared with other tourist areas; e.g. the Gold Coast, Qld. According to the Queensland Licensing Commission, 6 monthly extensions to the hours detailed below in Table 1 are by special application and must be associated with particular services for tourists.
