New laws to water down alcohol-fuelled violence in bars

New legislation will be introduced into the Victorian Parliament to require bars, pubs and clubs to serve free drinking water.

NEW legislation will be introduced into the Victorian Parliament to require bars, pubs and clubs to serve free drinking water. 


The move is a bid to address alcohol-fuelled violence in Melbourne, the Gaming Minister Tony Robinson said. 


"Free drinking water is an important measure in addressing some of the anti-social activities we've seen arising as a result of excessive consumption of alcohol," he said. 


The law will come into effect this year, ABC News reports.
