Will you help to put pokies in their place?

In this term of NSW Parliament, we are calling for:

  1. NSW to follow and improve on the Tasmanian Government’s introduction of universal cashless and harm reduction payment systems for gambling.
  2. All poker machines in pubs and clubs to be turned off between midnight and 10am.
  3. The establishment of a single, state-wide self-exclusion register funded by gambling taxation revenue, managed independently from the gambling industry, and overseen by an appropriate independent statutory body.
  4. Councils to have a statutory right to be able to make submissions on every poker machine application in their community, regardless of Local Impact Assessment status, and appeal any decision made by the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority.
  5. NSW poker machine data to be transparently published by venue at least every six months.
