Australian Task Force Backs Gambling Bill

29 November 2001

AUSTRALIA -– As reported by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: "A private member's bill tabled in Parliament by Gippsland MP Susan Davies has won the support of the Interchurch Gambling Task Force.

"Ms Davies wants smoking banned in gaming venues and large pokie winnings to be paid out by cheque.

"…`We are so out of whack here in Australia with 21 per cent of all the world's high intensity pokies and with the hungriest, the fastest the most accessible pokies in the world, we just have to get back into a sensible trading position,' [said the task force's Reverend Tim Costello]."
