GAMBLING LOSSES FOR THE AREA
|Club (with Blayney)||2020/2021||$17,610,922||267||7|
NSW Liquor and Gaming bundle together the data for neighbouring council areas if, in one or more of those areas, there are less than 5 venues of a type. These bundled groups are not consistent from one half year to the next, nor are they necessarily the same for pubs and clubs. It makes it very difficult to establish losses in individual council areas which do not have many gambling pubs or clubs.

What is your position on poker machine policy?
Generally I am concerned as to the huge increase in gambling advertising. Concerned as to the reach of poker machines sure - but people will gamble if determined - but the extent of advertising, which reaches much further past pokies into mainstream sports etc, and advertising on prime time television. My personal view is that gambling advertising should be banned in the same manner cigarette industry was banned.
All those reducing and eliminating pokies
