Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (27 November) . . Page.. 4869 ..
gaming machine revenue will not be able to be counted as community purpose contribution.
The amendments make some technical amendments to clause 109 to ensure the heading and language in section 35 of the Gaming Machine Regulation better reflect that the power under which that section is made relates to the club annual reports.
The bill crystallises the government's reforms to reduce the number of gaming machines and to ensure that the community benefits more from the gaming machine revenue that clubs receive. I thank all of those who have contributed to the development of the bill, including the clubs industry and the community, and Mr Neville Stevens AO for his analysis. I commend the bill to the Assembly.
That this bill be agreed to in principle.
