New research led by Dr Taisia Huckle from SHORE & Whariki  shows social supply of alcohol to friends under 18 has reduced following a law change (Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012), but the quantities of alcohol supplied are still alarmingly high. Two national general population surveys of drinkers were analysed before and after the law change, which came into effect on December 1 2013. Dr Huckle was interviewed for a New Zealand Herald article about the study’s findings.
