Labour calls for ban on alcohol advertising

first_imgTVNZ News 12 July 2012 Labour is continuing to take a hard line on alcohol reform by proposing greater restrictions on advertising. The opposition party has been drumming up support in Parliament in recent weeks for legislation to set a minimum price for a drink. Labour’s latest call is for alcohol prices to be banned from television and radio advertising in the Alcohol Reform Bill, which is soon to be debated in Parliament. “Because we know that it’s the shifting of huge quantities that cause a lot of the problems we have,” Labour’s associate health spokesperson Iain Lees-Galloway said. “It’s a lot more than chest beating, it’s about trying to get results.” The Government said the bill already prohibits advertising alcohol discounted by 25% or more. “The changes that are recommended in the legislation are based on research and i think they are well founded,” Prime Minister John Key said. To get the ban into the bill, Labour needs the support of the opposition parties and the Maori Party.http://tvnz.co.nz/politics-news/labour-calls-ban-alcohol-advertising-4967073last_img read more

Windies players told me India didn’t want to see Pakistan qualify for semi-finals: Mushtaq Ahmed

first_img“I WAS working with the West Indies squad at last year’s World Cup. After India’s loss to England, Jason Holder, Chris Gayle and Andre Russell said to me, Mushy, India didn’t want to see Pakistan qualify for the semi-finals,” Mushtaq Ahmed told  Pakistani news channel ARY SportsAll-rounder Ben Stokes talking about India’s run-chase against England in the 2019 World Cup in his book has taken a new turn now with former Pakistan spinner Mushtaq Ahmed saying that West Indies players had told him after watching the game that India lost the game to stop Pakistan from entering the knockout stages.Stokes has denied the claims that in his latest book “Ben Stokes on Fire”, he suggested that India deliberately lost to England at the 2019 World Cup in the round-robin stage.Former Pakistan bowler Sikander Bakht recently claimed on Twitter that Stokes, in his book, has said that India lost intentionally to England to remove Pakistan from the World Cup. “Ben Stokes writes in his book that India lost to England deliberately to remove Pakistan from world Cup 19 and we predicted it,” Bakht tweeted.In response to Bakht’s tweet, a Twitter user asked where has Stokes made such comments. In response to the user’s question, the star England all-rounder himself responded: “You won’t find it cause I have never said it… it’s called “twisting of words” or “click bait”.”IANS has also reviewed the book and there was no such mention. In his book, Stokes does talk about the approach of the Indians in that chase and how it was surprising to see them looking to keep wickets in the kitty and take the game to the backend.Stokes, in fact, also speaks about how this might no longer be the smart way of approaching the game as the required run-rate starts piling up and it starts impacting those that come in at the fall of a wicket.(Reprinted from Hindustan Tines)last_img read more
