Senator KAKOSCHKE-MOORE (South Australia) (21:26): Minister, in response to one of our questions on notice during the Senate committee's inquiry into this bill, concerning availability of in-play betting—those questions that we asked in relation to those concerns about the availability of in-play betting—the department responded:

The 'place-based betting service' exemption in proposed section 8BA is intended to permit betting services, including potentially in-play betting services, to be provided on electronic equipment (which may include easy betting terminals and/or tablets) made available to customers in places such as TABs, casinos and clubs.

Will the government undertake to conduct modelling or any other monitoring or review of whether this provision leads to an uptake in betting activity and problem gambling behaviour due to the increased availability of these electronic devices in TABs, casinos and clubs?
