It was reported that: The NT News has learned that some of the forces highest ranking officers favour further tightening of the present 4am weekend closing times. The 4am closing was on trial until the end of that month. The three-month trial was introduced on October 28, 1994, cutting nightclub trading hours from 6am to 4am at weekends and from 4am to 3am on weeknights. A mandatory $5 nightclub cover charge part of the trial and which did not allow for re-entry slowed movement on Darwin city streets, a nightclub owner said. The moves were in line with recommendations of the dAbbs report into nightclub violence. NT Hotels and Hospitality Association boss Doug Sallis said he had seen no evidence to support police claims that either of the new measures was working to reduce alcohol-related violence after closing time contrary to Supt Denver Marchants claim that there was a drop in the number of angry drunks roaming the streets since the trials began. Mr Salliss view was supported by Police Association chief Max Hill, who said the problems associated with closing time had simply been brought forward two hours. Most of the problems dont show up on the record books until the person ends up in court, but my information is that the number of incidents now are just as prevalent as ever, he said. The view was also taken by Magistrate Dick Wallace, who said he had failed to notice any great change in the number of alcohol and nightclub-related incidents coming before the courts. Mr Sallis said the NTHHA was seeking statistics on the incident rates. We simply want to sit down and talk this through with the affected parties, he said. Darwin clubs and hotels were represented at a meeting with police and Liquor Commission officials. Police Commissioner Brian Bates denied any knowledge of the moves for 2am closing times. Mr Sallis said he was unable to disclose details of of any discussions concerning closing times, but conceded that parties affected by the issue had failed to find common ground on trading hours restrictions. 1995:WHATROCKED THEWORLD Jan AUS John Howard becomes leader of the Liberal Party Mar Somalia United Nations peacekeepingmission ends May France Jacques Chirac is elected president Jun Greece A 6.2 earthquake hits the city of Aigio Jul Bosnia The Srebrenicamassacre occurs Aug USA Microsoft releasesWindows 95 Sep USA eBay is founded Oct USA OJ Simpson found not guilty of doublemurder Nov USA Toy Story released by Pixar Animation Nov France The Dayton Agreement is signed in Paris SOURCE: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995
