From Nine To Noon, 9:28 am on 30 September 2016

A systemic review of the effects of trading hours has been published today in the Sax Institute's Public Health Research and Practice. It looked at 21 separate studies on trading hours and alcohol-related harm in 8 different countries - all of which showed a reduction in trading hours was associated with a drop in violence while increasing trading hours seemed to increase violence. Nine to Noon speaks to Claire Wilkinson from Melbourne's Centre for Alcohol Policy Research at La Trobe University.
