ILGA Weakened

9 November 2015

In Parliament, I opposed a bill which removed powers and independence from the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority. While liquor and gaming have damaging impacts, they provide income to government and a strong independent enforcement body is vital. My speech is HERE.  

Meanwhile, the ABC documentary Ka-Ching! showed that poker machines are rigged and designed for addiction. I’ve asked the Minister for Racing how he will prevent poker machine addiction and community harm. Read my questions HERE

You can view the documentary and take action to support the Alliance for Gambling Reform campaign to prevent poker machine harm at www.pokiesplayyou.org.au.
