Young parents or older friends of school leavers are more likely to buy teenagers alcohol, despite an $8,000 fine, our survey shows.
Almost 50% of 18-34 year olds who responded to The Sunday Mail - Nine News State of Families survey said it was ok to supply underage teens with alcohol.
That compared to 79% of people overall who believed it was a no-no..........
Under laws that were introduced in 2008, adults must provide responsible supervision to minors when supplying them with alcohol for consumption in private places such as parties or Schoolies.
"Adult-supervision" is not considered to be someone over 18 years of age, but a mature person who is a parent, guardian or step-parent.
