Government scraps projected ban on Songkran alcohol sales

The government’s controversial and much-discussed projected nationwide ban on the sale of alcohol during the upcoming Songkran festival was scrapped last week due to concern about its effects on an already battered tourist industry.
The decision was announced by the National Committee for Alcohol Consumption, along with plans for a new campaign against drink-driving, after a two hour meeting with other concerned government agencies. During the meeting, concern had also been expressed that a Songkran alcohol sales ban would result in increased sales of illegal and unsafe alcoholic beverages.
Representatives from the Alcohol Watch Network were disappointed at the decision, stating that the committee could easily have approved the ban, which would have reduced road deaths and injuries over the holiday period.
