Brian Hood Coliban I am totally against poker machines and sports betting. I want to see all TV ads removed.
William McClenaghan Holcombe Council Social Policy sums it up for elected Councillors. We are stuck with the number of EGMs we have already but we really have no need of more. No more machines and venues to encourage gambling harm. Gambling advertising also should be banned, especially for underage and vulnerable persons. I personally do not gamble nor feel any need to do so.
