THE MINISTER FOR THE

CAPITAL TERRITORY

The Minister for the Capital Territory, Mr Bob Ellicott, announced

today that he had discussed the arrangements applying to NSW Lotto

and lottery sales in the ACT with the NSW Treasurer, Mr J.B. Renshaw.

Mr Ellicott said his aim in the discussions was to secure for the

ACT a proper share of the revenue earned in the Territory from interstate

lotteries.

The talks had been useful and there had been agreement that the

Victorian Government should be invited to join in discussions with

representatives of the NSW Government and the ACT administration to

consider possible revenue sharing arrangements.

Mr Ellicott said it was planned that these discussions be held early

in the new year.
