Australia: Prime Minister admits pokie reform lacks support

20 January 2012

AUSTRALIA -- The ongoing pokie reform saga continues with Prime Minister Julia Gillard saying there's an appetite for it, but it may not be sufficiently supported in parliament, according to an ABC News report.

Gillard's government did a deal with Independent Andrew Wilkie and Wilkie dispute Gillard's assertion about support, the report explained.

Anti-gambling groups are now joining in with their own leafleting campaign, ABC News reported.

Wilkie has also threatened to re-examine his support for other government measures, the report noted.
