Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 13 Hansard (Thursday, 18 November 2010) . . Page.. 5671 ..

We have Canberra Repertory, which has a bar. The implications for Canberra Repertory, another den of alcohol-fuelled violence, with be substantial. Every time someone hires the Courtyard Theatre across the way—and most of us have attended plays at the Courtyard Theatre put on by Free Rain and other organisations—they will have a different and more arduous licensing regime because Simon Corbell thinks that they are a centre of alcohol-fuelled violence.
