Submission to the Senate Economics References Committee Inquiry into Personal Choice and Community Impacts 2015

The CIS submission into the Senate Economics References Committee Inquiry proposed two tightly targeted areas be changed:

1. That the Department of Health withdraw all financial support for the Health Star Rating system, including explanatory websites, public awareness campaigns, and studies of its effectiveness.
2. That the government restore the tax on ready-to-drink alcoholic drinks (‘alcopops’) to pre- 008 levels, preliminary to an overall reconsideration of alcohol taxes.
