EDUCATION is key to preventing further deaths from home-distilled alcohol, Attorney General Brian Wightman says.
Mr Wightman said he had not yet considered introducing state laws to prevent the home production of liquor, or lobbying the Federal Government to change national legislation, following the deaths of two Tasmanian men this week that were linked to home-brewed spirits.
``You can go down the path of legislation ... but we need to make sure that people are aware of the dangers of home brewing, especially home-brewed spirits,'' he said.
``The best way to change behaviour is about education.
``The most important thing is that we don't have more deaths occurring.
``The thoughts of the state government go out to those families.''
