The error in amendment 29 regarding the number of machines a licensee may operate before being subject to the ATM withdrawal limit in effect provides that the limit does not apply to a licensed premise if the licence authorises the operation of 10 or less gaming machines rather than the 20 less as intended.
It is clear that the amendment was intended to ensure that the ATM withdrawal limit did not apply to smaller gaming venues, and this bill puts in place the arrangements to which the Assembly agreed during the debate. I commend the bill to the Assembly.
Debate (on motion by Mr Smyth) adjourned to the next sitting.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations and Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development) (11.34), by leave: I move:
(1) The following general purpose standing committees be established and each committee inquire into and report on matters referred to it by the Assembly or matters that are considered by the committee to be of concern to the community:
