Gambling

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this House calls on the Council of Australian Governments to implement a National Partnership Agreement on gambling reform, that agrees to:

(1) implement a:

(a) national cap on electronic gaming machines; and

(b) long term national reduction strategy on electronic gaming machines underneath a national cap;

(2) refer the issue of revenue loss from a national reduction strategy to the State Tax Working Group, set up by the Tax Forum, so that any losses incurred are spread across State and Commonwealth revenues; and

(3) include online gaming reform, sports betting reform and horse, harness and greyhound race coverage reform to address links between problem gambling and national health outcomes, as well as any links to the proceeds of crime, money laundering and community safety.
