New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian says that Sydney’s lockout laws should be rolled back, in order to bolster Sydney’s night-time economy. A joint parliamentary committee is investigating Sydney’s night-time economy, and is due to release its report in coming weeks. It is expected that 1.30am lockouts would be lifted in Sydney’s CBD entertainment district, but would remain in place in Kings Cross. Venue operators have welcomed the prospect that the lockout laws will be eased, but St Vincent’s Hospital has expressed its disappointment; it notes it has not seen one alcohol-related assault death since the laws were introduced in 2014.
