Drinking issue may
spill across border
New rules could attract troublemakers
MOVES to ban angry drunks from
multiple venues in NSW could see anti-
social or violent behaviour shunted across
the border into Canberra.
A new multi-venue barring order will be
used in areas such as Queanbeyan when a
patron has been involved in a series of
incidents at various local venues over a
prolonged period of time.
ClubsNSW welcomed the NSW gov-
ernment initiative to allow licensed venues
to ban troublemakers from all clubs and
pubs across a local area.
The big winners out of this are the
millions of families and friends who go
out to their local club each year to have a
good time and enjoy themselves,''
ClubsNSW chief executive Anthony Ball
These people shouldn't have to put up
with the small number of people who
cause problems for everyone else.''
But what is good for somewhere like
Queanbeyan might not be that good for the
ACT. Banned NSW patrons could seek
drinking holes in Canberra.
There has got to be the odd occasion
where that will happen,'' Kingston Hotel
duty manager Stuart Thom said.
He said anyone at his establishment that
was intoxicated was stopped at the door
and refused entry and any troublemakers
were handed an instant ban.
Queanbeyan Kangaroo Club operations
manager Janelle Bergkotte said they had
about 20 troublemakers on their banned
list and believed other pubs and clubs had
She said the technology to share
information about anti-social patrons
hadn't been set up yet, but expected it
would soon be helpful.
Although the ACT does not have similar
powers in place for pubs and clubs to ban
people from a local area, Mr Thom said
they already shared some information
between venues to warn of any impending
Nevertheless, he believed the more
information available about such people
the better -- and that ACT authorities could
look at the NSW government's example.
Meanwhile Mr Ball said the ability to
bar known troublemakers from their local
licensed venues meant they could target
the small percentage of people who caused
trouble, while making sure everyone else
It has been incredibly frustrating for
club managers to find out that a person
who has caused trouble at their club has
already been banned from a nearby club
for similarly bad behaviour,'' he said.
Once a person is banned from one club
in an area, they are likely to be banned
from them all.''
