WA Labor's McGowan wants more small bars

AAP logoAAP 7/10/2016

There will be even more of the small bars credited with injecting much-needed vibrancy into Perth's social scene if WA Labor wins the state election in March, leader Mark McGowan says.

When in power in 2006, the party changed liquor laws to make it easier for new small bars to be established.

Mr McGowan told a business forum on Friday he was keen to further deregulate, reducing the three years an unsuccessful applicant must wait to try again.

"I'm going to do a second phase of those. It's one of those issues I'm very keen on advancing," he said.
