    The Minister of Commerce offered no justifiable reason for not lifting the present ban on alcohol sales. The 24 hour curfew is long over as is the resultant period of chaos when supermarkets re-opened.
    To continue denying the general public with the ability to purchase limited amounts of alcohol from specified outlets and for home use will be welcomed by law abiding Lucians. The reasons given do not hold water. Limit sales to beer and wine if there is concern about ‘rum parties’ i.e. no spirit sales. Limit the amount sold to an individual ~ say a 3 or 6 pack of beer and/or a bottle of wine. It is easy for door staff checking face masks and distributing hand sanitizer to monitor customers and prevent repeated sales of alcohol to those trying to circumvent the alcohol limit. Never forget that the Government needs to raise taxes, especially at this time and alcohol sales provide an excellent source of income. Time to lift the ban on alcohol sales. There is no logic in continuing with this ban.
