GAMBLING LOSSES FOR THE AREA

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.

Which of the policies referred to in our Candidate Information Pack do you support?
What is your position on poker machine policy?
Gambling harm, especially its growing influence and promotion in media, is my greatest concern.
I support all efforts to minimise gambling and would oppose council involvement in gambling or gambling promotion. I support all points in your information. Any revenues from gambling should go back into the community not to corporations.
I think poker machines in hotels are a plague. I support those policies which stop the expansion of poker machines in hotels. The limitations on smoking and access to ATM's have gone and should be reinstated.
I support the reduction of gambling in all its forms.
