Frank McLoughlin Unsubdivided I do not feel that poker machines add any entertainment value, the opposite, they detract from all environments. They therefore do not belong in environments like pubs and clubs. To extend that theme, there should be significant limits on TAB facilities in venues that serve alcohol - this is were a lot of troubles with problem gambling manifest themselves
Troy Dillon Unsubdivided Stop the expansion of gambling in our suburbs & towns.  My position is to keep indigo Shire Free of Poker Machines
