Tasmanian Groups Alarmed by Report

25 November 2004

TASMANIA, Australia – As reported by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: "Welfare groups in Tasmania have expressed alarm after the release of the Tasmanian Gaming Commission's annual report.

"Almost $2 billion was wagered on poker machines in the state last financial year - a jump of more than $100 million on the previous year.

"Mat Rowell, from the Tasmanian Council of Social Service, says the increase is alarming but not surprising.

"…Finance Minister Jim Cox says the Government is making progress in reducing the harm caused by gambling."
