Avoid Heavy Fines- don’t serve alcohol to teens


One person has been charged with providing alcohol to a minor in WA in the first year of the state government’s secondary supply laws.

An awareness campaign has been urged to educate minors and suppliers about the risks of underage drinking.

Secondary supply laws carry a maximum penalty of $10,000 for anyone supplying alcohol to minors on unlicensed premises without the consent of a parent or guardian. The laws came into effect on November 20, 2015.

School leavers who are 18 years old can be fined for supplying alcohol to their underage classmates.
